Z 95.1 Radio - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Live From Detroit DVD

"It's like the best we've ever been like last year. You know we have this DVD coming out. And the reason we actually done that in the first place was because everyone kept saying; 'You know we've seen you guys over the last 30 years and this is the best time we've ever seen you' So we actually decided to you know record a show so we could document that."

"And that, yeah it blows me away. It still blows me away the fact that we can still actually play better now than we did back then."

Music He Listens To

"Everything. You know I have like playlists I work out to. I've got a 70s funk one. I've got - you know, whatever it is. Of modern day bands or bands that are out there now that are doing well. I love Coldplay, I think they're great. I think you know melodically the songs are great. Just a lot of different things you know. Could be Jazz and I could be listening to Miles Davis one minute and kind of you know Zeppelin the next. So yeah just everything. All the above."
