Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen celebrates his 59th birthday today and a photo gallery is available.

Phil was born in Hackney (in London), England (at 12:02am) on this day in 1957 to parents Kenneth and Constance (nicknamed Connie).

He is currently on a break at home in California after the 2016 tour ended in Cedar Rapids, IA on 10th October.

Phil joined the band in in July 1982 to help out as they recorded the 'Pyromania' album.

He ended up joining them full time and formed a partnership and close friendship with (fellow Terror Twin) Steve Clark.

Phil is currently continuing to work on finishing up the next Tesla studio album which is due for release in early 2017.

He is also preparing to issue a long awaited live album with his side band Delta Deep which as yet has no specific release date.
