Robert Cavuoto/Metal Rules - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Delta Deep Live Album/DVD

"At the moment it's just audio but again a DVD would be really great if we get the option on the East Coast. We are going to call the CD, West Coast Live so maybe we can call the DVD; East Coast Live."

Producing Tesla Album/Broke 'n' Brokenhearted

"Joe and I probably had the best writing experience. We wrote the quickest song we had ever done; “Broken ‘n’ Brokenhearted” which we wrote in about 10 minutes. We actually have a new vibe to writing and recording for Def Leppard. I’ll be producing the new Tesla CD and will take the same approach."
