iHeartRadioCA - Phil Collen Interview Quotes - (Transcribed by dltourhistory)

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame/2018 Stadium Tour

"Yeah, yeah, we did. It's on a really good trajectory. I think there's a lot of really great things happening with us. It's an Indian Summer with our career, you know."

2019 European Tour

" It's, you know, what was really cool last year we managed to do a stadium tour with Journey and that was amazing. And it's just been going up ever since then, you know, we're just on a tour right now of Europe mainly doing like festivals and stuff. And we're in Milan right now in Italy. And we're just doing like a regular arena here and we played Prague last night. So yeah, it's pretty incredible and, you know, Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. All of these things they just keep kind of um adding up. It just keeps kind of pushing us, you know, the trajectory keeps going up. So yeah we're digging that for sure."

More Manraze Music/Possible Solo Album

"We do. It's just getting the time, you know. There's more Delta Deep stuff as well. And I was kinda toying with the idea of actually just doing a solo album and just putting all these kind of ideas and all these, you know, people that have been in these bands guest on it."

New Def Leppard Music

"But yeah I dunno. You know it's just getting the time for that as well 'cause we're like really crazy busy. You know we have started recording new material and writing it for sure. Yeah. So that's for Def Leppard anyway. So yeah and I think we'll probably do some of it like I did the Tesla album. You know I produced the new Tesla album and we done it while we were on tour together."

"You know we'd find a back room, or you know, dressing room. A trailer or something and record different parts every day and it worked a treat. You know it was just a, you know, because we were on tour together at the time it was just an inspiring thing. Just constantly playing and then you're recording as well and writing. So yeah I think if we do something like that it's just kind of. It's really important that we put we put new music out as well. Def Leppard that is."

"Yeah gotta be totally inspired all the time. And that's what we like to be."
