Ultimate Classic Rock - Rick Allen Interview Quotes

"We're going to be taking the 'Sparkle Lounge' back out on the road with us, which is an 'imaginary studio,' or the studio that came out of our imagination. We set this thing up everyday, this drum kit, all of the instruments and microphones and it's a great way to come up with new music while we're in that mode of playing in front of live audiences, which is very inspiring as you can imagine."

"I've heard a couple of things - Phil has sent me a few ideas and I'm working on some ideas to send back to him. You just reminded me that I need to get that to him today! I can tell you that they are some really exciting ideas, so I'm excited for a new record in the not too distant future."
