Trunk Nation - Phil Collen Interview Quotes - (Transcribed by dltourhistory)

Phil Collen Solo Album/Delta Deep/Manraze

"Yeah I think so. I mean I think what tended to happen is like we had all this stuff, Delta Deep, for the second studio album and I've been working with Paul Cook."

"You know we're friends and he came over just before this happened. He came over to LA and I worked on a thing with him and it was really cool."

"And he said you know it should have been your solo album. He said I think it would have got more traction if we'd have done, if Manraze had of been that ."

"So I'm actually considering with all the stuff I've got. 'Cause I've got some instrumental stuff that's really cool, Some guitar stuff, and going and making a solo album out of the whole thing."

"Which I think would be really cool. With the same people who've been on a Manraze or a Delta Deep thing but just giving it a different kind of energy or approach to it and having it be part of my solo album."

Special guests?

"Absolutely. I mean I have thought about that. I mean I've got an album's worth of stuff already. And it's already done like completely done. So it's, yeah, it's just a matter of committing to that and taking it from there really."

"Yeah it'd be really cool I think. I could definitely get some cool people here and there."
