Hitman/Big 93.9/KMXR - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Joe Elliott's Recovery

"He's great. We was touring nine months last year and Joe was actually touring with walking pneumonia for most of the time. When he got better. He actually got nasty cough just after Christmas, after the kind of pneumonia had gone, this awful hacking cough. So that's really what kind of messed him up. You know when we done these dates in Florida. We done like one show and all of a sudden his voice just kind of went out. The doctor said look you've gotta stop singing for a month. So he's doing great now. He's actually all back to normal."

Cinco de Mayo/2016 Summer Tour

"Very cool. There you go. I didn't know that. But there you go that's great. It just keeps updating, upgrading. More muscular, the whole thing every time we go out. We're obviously gonna be promoting the new album, Def Leppard. So we're gonna try and put newer songs in as well. I mean that's always a tough one. You know when you put a new album out. You know you can't play - you'd love to play everything. But you know the fans obviously want to hear classics as well. So we're kind of (trying to) - dance across that line where you play new stuff but not too many."

New Single This Summer/New Songs Live?

"Absolutely, yeah. You know we'll have a new single off it I'm sure. We're actually working on that now. So yeah that'll all be good."
