Team Rock - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

New Def Leppard Studio Album

"It's pretty much done. Today I'm doing one vocal line. We're just finishing little bits off and then it'll be mixed and mastered. We went in to do one song or an EP because there's no real point in doing albums these days as a major artist."

"We went in and ended up with 12 songs. I think that was because there was no restriction, no record company executives wanting singles and filler. Some of the songs have more guitars than we've ever had, and then we went overboard on the vocals - it makes Queen sound like Popeye doing A Capella! We did this album for us, for no one else."
