Def Leppard guitarists Phil Collen and Vivian Campbell were recently interviewed in Glasgow by STV and mentioned the new album.

They talked about why they keep touring, the new album, the reaction to it, touring with Whitesnake, how they stay together and the upcoming 25th anniversary of Steve Clark's death.

The interview was hosted by Mary McCool and took place before the show at The SSE Hydro on 10th December.

Phil's chart positions are a bit off as the album wasn't Number One outside of rock charts and did not reach the Top Five in the main USA album chart.

Watch the almost five minute video interview via the show link below.

STV - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

The best album since Hysteria?

"I think so, absolutely.."

Reaction from the fans?

"It's been like that. Thank god. We thought that. We done, like Viv said, we'd done this album for us. But the reaction was like way better than we thought it would be. You know it went straight in at Number Five in the States on the Billboard album charts. Number One in different countries around the world. And our fans have been just like loving it. They've been going oh my god we've been waiting for this album. So it's really good. In this day and age with the industry they way it is. It's just wonderful to be able to do something like that."
