Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen has been interviewed by Playbackstl ahead of the show in St. Louis.

Phil talked about collaborating with Tim McGraw on 'Nine Lives', the re-recordings of PSSOM/ROA, modern music downloads versus the classic vinyl era, the possibility of Manraze touring the US, playing 'football' with Iron Maiden and a story of how St. Louis relates to the recording of 'Nine Lives'.

Playbackstl - Phil Collen Interview Quote

"But as far as our collaborations, they happened very naturally. In the case of Tim McGraw, I played him something I had been working on, and within a minute and a half we had the nucleus of what became the song 'Nine Lives.' It was just a very natural and organic way of working."
