Arroe Collins - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Tesla/More Shows On The Def Leppard 2016 Tour

"I'm producing the new Tesla album. I've got a song on that and then Def Leppard. We're gonna be on tour."

"You know they keep adding dates. We're going up until October and I think there's some other shows around the world that are gonna be interesting. So yeah who knows. I think it's constant and I'm so busy all the time and I love that."

Def Leppard Working Together

"Certainly with Def Leppard everyone has very different views on many things. But when you come together and you say well check this new song out. This new idea. There's two ways of approaching it. You can either kind of resist or you get inspired and you go along with it."

"And that's really what we did on the new Def Leppard album. Everyone was so inspired and we just kind of - it just opened us up into a totally different realm. It was lovely."
