Next Def Leppard Album/New Songs

"We're always working on new material. There's always something on the go. And normally this room would be dedicated to... you know, there's a small drumkit. There's a couple of guitar amps. A bass amp. And them somewhere to just record ideas."

"But most people these days, you know, you come up with an idea. You just grab this [phone], sing into it and that's your idea. But then, you know, we'll take that. Work on it in small groups. It might be Joe and Phil. Or Joe and Sav. Or you know me and Sav. Just different combinations."

"And you know whoever comes up with ideas, we just encourage everybody to put 'em down and then we'll review them. And then see which ones we wanna take forward."
