Metal Global - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Delta Deep Christmas Song/New Music?

"Yeah we've got pretty much almost a second albums worth of material. We recorded a song. This...jazz - it really sounds like 1930s/40s jazz. But we're releasing it as a Christmas single. And Robert Deleo and Forrest Robinson are doing the drums and bass. I think next week and I won't even be there because I've gotta go to Vegas to do this TV show with Joe."

"So they're gonna do that and we'll get that out but yeah we're gonna plan on a second album. And also you know touring. We have to tour. We've only done two shows and they were great. You know we played LA and New York. So it's just very hard with Def Leppard working so much and Robert being in the Stone Temple Pilots and they've even been doing lots of gigs. So it's hard to get the time."
