Def Leppard - Singapore Press Conference Interview Quote

Phil on the album - "We done it because we wanted to. Before we knew it we had all these fantastic ideas and we got really excited about creating. That was just a beautiful thing. We were able to create and do it for the right reasons. It wasn't a business proposition. It was an artistic thing that we really wanted to do. That's why I think the album sounds the way it does. It's purer. It's got a really great spirit about it. And I think that's because of the way it came about. It was all done in the true sense of artistry."

Def Leppard - Singapore Radio Interview Quote

Phil on the new album - "The whole vibe of it was different. With this one there was absolutely no rule. We didn't think we as making an album. And it flowed. So it was so inspiring. I think it's one of the most inspiring albums we've ever done actually. So we're so proud of it. You can't pick a best song because they're all just amazing. Again you know the old cliche they're like your kids. You can't choose one. You can but you shouldn't!."
