AZ Central - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Def Leppard's 2018/2019 World Tour

"So I think I’m certainly gonna be doing stuff on the next Def Leppard tour, which is a real long one. It’s gonna be like a year and a half, starting in May."

New Rick Savage Song

"We’ve got three songs, Rick Savage has got this amazing ballad. Joe’s got this incredible concept for a song with some lyrics. I haven’t heard the latest demo. I’ve got one finished song that everyone’s fallen in love with, just a rock singalong, an exciting rock song. So we’ve got stuff on the go. It’s just a matter of when we’re gonna get time to do it."

Next Def Leppard Album

"If someone is sitting there playing piano and that sounds right, if the song's cool and everything, then it will work next to some aggressive rock song. I’m excited by that prospect."
