Maximum Music Morning Show - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Current 2017 Tour

"Phenomenal, the audience is loving it. It's three bands. It's the original members and stuff. It's not like karaoke or anything. It's like real integrity, all three bands. And every band's just trying their hardest and the audience is responding. Yeah, we're having a blast out here. It's great."

Delta Deep Live Album/Next Album

"Yeah the Delta Deep, we've got a live album coming out this year. Actually there's probably a track within the next month gonna surface I would imagine. And then after that start working on our second studio album. Which again the tough thing is getting the time to do that. You know everyone is in other bands. You know Robert DeLeo who plays in Stone Temple Pilots is the bass played. Debbie Blackwell-Cook's the singer and Forrest Robinson who plays drums. And then me I'm always touring, it's hard to find the time. So we'll just get like five days here and there and record like that. I like doing it that was anyway. So that's pretty exciting as well."

New Def Leppard Music

"And obviously with Def Leppard it's non ending. You know we're starting to work on some new music as well there."

2017 Live Show/Setlist

"Like I said you know, we've got better. I've never heard Joe Elliott sing this well in my life. I mean since we've been in the band. Which for me is 35 years. It's amazing, his voice. I'm thrilled about that and we've just got better as a band. So, we're promoting the live DVD. So most of the stuff off of that. And then you know obviously Poison and Tesla go down an absolute storm. A lot of these dates sold out already. It's just been - audience reaction has just been ridiculous. So yeah we're having a lot of fun out there."
