Guitar Tech Recording - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

G4 Experience/G3 Tour

"The G4 Experience was actually the first time that I got to hang out with Joe, we just had a blast. It was wonderful. Joe’s so amazing, and I’ve always been a fan. When I got asked to do the G3 thing, it didn’t surprise me because we had such a great time doing G4, it was a blast!"

Hysteria Song

"I was a actually talking to Joe, and with John Petrucci yesterday. You know, the song “Hysteria” has about 4 different guitar parts during the chorus, as well as all the vocals. It’s always a compromise when we play it with 2 guitar players, whether it’s me and Steve Clark or me and Vivian Campbell."
