Static Beach - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Status Of The Living With Def Leppard Series?

"That's a very good point. I'm not sure cause it was supposed to be this side of Christmas so I don't really know what's happening there but they finished it so in a nutshell I have no clue. But it'll be really cool cause we filmed everything. You know we filmed all the backstage and they got a profile of everyone. It was actually really cool but I have no idea when that's gonna make it on TV."

Back for a second residency next summer?/2014 Recording

"They did ask us back earlier. They wanted us to do January but because of this tendon thing in my finger. I had to have this operation they had to stitch the tendon back on. So I can't really play guitar properly till February and we're actually gonna ago and do some new Def Leppard songs which will be great."
