Any plans for a new Def Leppard album?

"Yeah, I spoke to Phil yesterday and actually we're in the studio today. And he's gonna be playing me some ideas that he's come up with for our next studio album. So I'm excited to hear them."

What is the process of putting a new album together?

"Yeah it sort of goes around the houses. You know, it'll be an idea is born and somebody else will pass it - or somebody else will add their own bits to it. And it just gets passed down the line until you know it either ends up with me and I go well I can't do anything with it and I'll pass it back to Joe - kind of thing."
