News - Def Leppard Phil Collen Hysteria Track By Track Interview

Thursday, 5th July 2012


Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen has been interviewed by Music Radar about the 25th anniversary of the Hysteria album.

Phil gives a track by track rundown of each track sharing his memories from the writing and recording of the band's most successful album.

I think it's safe to say there probably won't be a similar interview done in 25 years time about any re-recordings of these songs.

Hysteria Track By Track - Phil Collen Interview Quote


"So I sat with Mutt and Steve and we worked on a demo. I played through the Gallien-Krueger, Steve went through a Rockman, and we were both using Mutt's guitars. I think I had either a Charvel or a Larrivee. Even though it was a demo, we were cranked up. Coming through the speakers, I got a bit of feedback, just barely, and it ended up on the record."
