SF Insider - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Digital Streaming/Were you guys kind of unsure what to make of it?

"No, we wanted to do it initially, but we didn’t like the rates they were giving artists. We put so much into those records and felt they were worth way more. You know Rick lost his arm and Steve lost his life, and we’ve done three of the most incredible rock albums of all time, so we felt we had more value than just being a part of some list, which was downloaded. It was annoying. We weren’t getting our dues paid. But, now we got a wonderful relationship with our label and a great plan in place moving forward with our tour and new Def Leppard album. We’re a real living, breathing rock band and we keep improving."

Second Delta Deep A;bum

"The new Delta Deep studio album, which comes out at the end of year, already has one track that’s like gospel hard rock, which I have never heard before. So, a lot of cool, different things still filtering in and I think this tour broadened our horizons without really having any limitations."
