Downtown Magazine NYC - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Manraze/Cybernauts New Music Plans/Tesla

"All the above. Man Raze, were looking at releasing an album. Im doing the new Tesla album, producing that. Thats underway at the moment. As for the Cybernauts, weve been promising that for years. Weve actually pretty much got all the songs. Weve got to record three more. Weve got some bass tracks from Trevor Bolder, who passed away. Woody Woodsmansey is going to play drums. Im going to play guitar and Joe [Elliott] has already done some acoustics and vocals, so its just a matter of us getting the time."

New York Pyromania Show With Def Leppard

"It would have been opening up for Billy Squire during the Pyromania tour, which was 1983. In the city I think we played surrounding areas like Jersey and Nassau Coliseum and stuff like that. I remember jamming in a club in the Village and Michael Bolton was singing. He was a rock singer back then, so we were jamming. Thats one of my first in the city kind of experiences."
