The Rolling Zone - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Inspirations/The Professionals Album

"And the Pistols when they came out, it was such an amazing thing. I have the honor of playing with Paul Cook in one of my other bands, Manraze. Theyíre actually doing a Professionals album, I just guested on one song. Steve Jones is on it, and Paul Cook. Itís kind of a punk thing. Itís just amazing. Itís kind of cool getting a lot of inspiration from different places, really. It can be a book, it can be a movie, it can be a story. Lots of different things kind of blow my skirt, if you like, just kind of gets the stuff moving."

New Def Leppard/Delta Deep Music

"Iím always working on Def Leppard stuff, and just songs in general [wherever] they end up. You know, weíre doing a new Delta Deep album."
