Canton Rep - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Almost Leaving The Band In 1991

"We'd written all the songs for the 'Adrenalize' album with Steve, I told Joe, 'I don't really know if I want to do this anymore.' The gang was suddenly different, and you can't replace a family member."

2015 Studio Album

"We'll do another month-long session after the tour, mix it early next year and hopefully it's out by March or April of 2015. There was so much flow among the band in the studio. There was no dry period. We had so many ideas. It still sounds like Def Leppard, but it has all these other influences."


"It's gone to the editing stage, and I'm sure we're gonna add a few bits and some finishing touches to it. There's a little bit of everything in there."
