Pure Rawk - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

2015 World Tour

"It’s crazy busy. We’ve just started a world tour, but we’ve been on tour for eight months before that! We’re in a very unique position now in that we still love playing and we’ve got loads of songs to choose from, and we’ve got this new album out which we didn’t expect. So it’s really refreshing, it feels like we’re doing something new, when we should be really jaded. That’s why a lot of other bands are disappearing because they’re jaded and they don’t like doing it anymore, but with us we feel like we’re just getting going."

VH1 Hysteria movie?

"I have seen it, I’ve met his Mum! I was in Vegas she recognised me, because when he was preparing for the film he was watching our videos and had a poster up of me, so she knew my face. I invited her to a show, and told everyone my mum was coming – not my real mum, my fake me’s mum!"
