Crash Davis - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

2015 Setlist

"Right so you have the hot chestnuts that you have to play. You have to play like PSSOM, Hysteria, Photograph, Let's Get Rocked. You've gotta play them. They're a given. There's a few of those actually. We got like a bunch of them. So everyone now and again I'd like to bring this up. What about if we play this?. And then everyone - the committee!, which is the band, goes 'Yeah, that'd be cool' or 'No I think maybe...'. So that's what happens. So we have a vote."

So there's a couple of songs we're actually gonna put in that we haven't played for a while. So that's gonna be fun on this tour."

2015 Studio Album

"We're really enthusiastic about our new album. I think it's the best thing we've done since Hysteria. You know honestly hands down and it's so diverse."
