High Speed Dirt - Phil Collen Interview Quote

"What got me was that I noticed I was very bored,' he admits. 'In the first two weeks, when I felt like I needed a drink I'd think that I was being pathetic, which is kinda not the normal thing to feel. But I thought that there was more to me than needing to get drunk just because I'm bored. So I went completely the other way and didn't care what anybody else thought."
