Phil Collen - 1st July 2020 Interview Quotes

New Music

"I've been recording. I've been writing stuff. I've been working out everyday. Just stuff."

"I thought I'd catch up on, you know, lots of movies. Which I have done, but nit as many. I thought when you've got time like this you'd take up a new martial art, start playing piano as well. And I haven't really had time for that."

"So it's still very much the stuff that's in my regular orbit. It's just you have to do it in a slightly different way."


"Right now what's happening, you know, with this Coronavirus. It's such a weird thing. It's obviously as everyone knows it's like being in a weird Sci-Fi movie."

"And I don't really know where it's going. So I think we have to accept it. What have to accept, this is strange. It may take longer than we thought to get back to normal. And I don't think it's gonna be as normal as it was, but it's gonna be a version of it where we can all kind of be OK with it."

"So I'm OK. Right now it's OK. I just think it's fascinating how dangerous this thing is."

2021 Touring

"And you know like I said, A year from last week we'll be doing the tour. It's just a pause you know."

"So if everything goes right and we do a little bit like the New Zealanders, we'll get back and we'll e on tour and it'll be hopefully great."
