App - Phil Collen/Robert DeLeo Interview Quotes

Hysteria Album

Phil - "I remember when (Def Leppard) were doing the 'Hysteria' (1987) album, which was almost 30 years ago," Collen said. "We were just trying to create a hybrid. It was all the great stuff that we grew up with. It was all the Zeppelins and all of the (Deep) Purples, all of that stuff, and also Prince and the Police, and trying to bring these influences into it and create this hybrid."

Stone Temple Pilots

Robert - "I think it’s always been there, I think it’s just louder with STP. Listen to ‘Interstate Love Song,’ which I wrote back in '94. That’s straight-up Motown R&B. If you go listen to ‘MTV Unplugged’ (1993) and hear us doing ‘Wicked Garden,’ that’s really a Tower of Power bass line."
