Music Radar - Phil Collen Interview Quote

PSSOM Recording

"The whole album was pretty much done on a Tom Scholz Rockman. We ran a cable from the headphone socket to the mixing desk. The intro riff was played on my silver and black crackle Jackson. I did two tracks with that and then over-dubbed with a Fender Telecaster. The rest of the song was played on 'Felix', my black 1978 Fender Strat that was fitted with a humbucker from my original Ibanez Destroyer."
