95 KGGO - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

The same setlist on this tour?

"No we're gonna add some stuff. Just recently like last November we played Japan and we'd been used to playing for like an hour and a half. And all of a sudden we had to play for two hours so we had to add ten songs. Over the period of while we were in Japan."

"So yeah we gonna be putting some of those in, some different tracks. You know and we've got the new song 'It's All About Believin'' which I'm sure we're gonna be playing that as well. So we're gonna rotate it and I think we'll have fun with it and it's gonna be slightly different this time around."

A new album's worth of new music? Maybe before the end of 2012?

"Yeah well for sure we're gonna have this thing called the Sparkle Lounge. Backstage we have little amps and a little drumkit and we work songs out. And I think for some reason if this stuff's in there we'll actually go in there when someone has an idea and kind of work it. So they'll be stuff ready by the end of the year for sure."
