Herald Dispatch - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

2016 Def Leppard Tour

"I love touring, otherwise I wouldn't do it, It is one of the best things in the world, and (it's) a no-brainer when you have people singing your songs and throwing their underwear at you. It's killer. It couldn't be better."

Recent High Profile Music Deaths

"These guys are dying really young, and the Prince thing was terrible as he was younger than me and Michael Jackson was younger than me, It is a time that can't last forever. And, there are no new guys that are coming up that can kind of touch that. There are no new David Bowies. There is no new Prince."
