Music Enthusiast Mag - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Delta Deep Album

"With David Coverdale, I really wanted him to do "Mistreated" with Debbi. How that really came about was I mentioned to David that I would be doing this album, and I asked him, "Would you be up to doing a ballad with Debbi on 'Mistreated'?" He said, "Oh my God, I'd love to. But I'm recording some of these older Deep Purple songs so I can't do that, but I'd love to be involved." So I asked him, "What song would you be interested in doing?" And without hesitation he asked me, "Do you know 'Private Number' by William Bell?" He sent me the thing and I said, "That's great."

Live Show/Touring Plans

"We were going to do an East Coast run this week but we're actually going to kick off in California with local gigs and clubs and bars before kicking off a full blown tour at some point. We're actually rehearsing tomorrow here in California, so that's going to be fun."
