Music Radar - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Is there a piece of gear you regret letting go?

"Brian May gave me this pedal that he'd made and he'd used it on the early Queen albums and on Killer Queen. He let me have it and I said, 'Oh my God, this is amazing!' It was this boost pedal, and I used it on Hysteria for Run Riot. It was really cool, but someone stole it."

What's the closest you've come to quitting music?

"I was very upset when Steve [Clark, Leppard guitarist 1978-91] died. I didn't just lose a best friend, it also made me think about all the stuff that we'd done together as a band and everything. I didn't really feel like carrying on but we did, obviously."
