Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen was interviewed in early 2014 by Concert Blogger Music Magazine and he talked about the Manraze EP.

Phil talked about the music industry, Manraze and the I Surrender EP, health/fitness/sobriety, Vivian's health, touring with big name acts, the audience, VIVA! Hysteria, the now cancelled Living With Def Leppard documentary and a second residency.

Most of the content of this interview is now out of date as it was done before Vivian's tests revealed his cancer was not completely gone.

Concert Blogger Music Magazine - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

VIVA Hysteria!

"We were there a month and it ended up being 11 shows. That was an amazing experience. It was a lot more work then I thought it would be. You can drive home from there in four hours, but I stayed there the whole time. We did the Hysteria album in its entirety."

Second Las Vegas Residency

"You wait for the offer. Hard Rock have asked us to come back and do Viva Pyromania. I can’t do it until later….that will probably be a while from now - in the fall of this year.."
