Montreal Gazette - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

1996 Slang Album

"We did an album in ’96 called Slang and it was a lot darker. A lot of the fans didn’t like it. I loved it. It was us experimenting with artistic expression. As cool as it was, it didn’t really go down well. So you have to be even more creative because your parameters for writing songs are a little narrower. You have to follow those guidelines."

2015 Def Leppard Album Success

"When we released that last album and it went top ten in like 25 different countries, I thought – ‘Wow. This is spectacular. Who would’ve thought?’ As long as we deliver, it gets more exciting. It actually really does."
