Rock Industry Magazine - Phil Collen Interview Quote

"In Manraze, it was completely different. There was a freedom there that we weren't allowed in other bands we were in, it just started clicking. This song I Surrender is actually 8 years old; we couldn't get it just right, the right ingredients; there was something really special about it, until last year when I was on tour with Def and I sang this new chorus; we kept the original drum track, but we did all the guitars, and vocals, added Debbie Blackwell-Cook who you hear at the end of it, and also one of the other tracks, we thought its a really strange way round; this time the song came after us! it made it really cool and special in its whole concept."
