Lamont And Tonelli - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

The Self-Titled Def Leppard Album

"It's wonderful. It's one of the best ones we've done. I'm so proud of it. It's really cool. And really that's why we called it Def Leppard because it actually represents us. Not a business agenda or some record company executive or any of that stuff. It's actually exactly as we planned it. So yeah no we're really proud of it."

Adrenalized Book

"It's about, obviously it starts off with me in London being born in London. It's just really nought to 57, I was 57 when it came out, within 200 pages. So yeah pretty much and it obviously covers all the Def Leppard stuff as well. But yeah it's the other things that I think that are more important. Where it actually takes you and changes you as a person from being like a factory worker leaving school at 16 to sitting here talking to you."
