New Hampshire - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Touring/Band Friendship

"I love touring. I think it’s the easiest, funnest part. It takes less brain power. A lot of time when you’re writing and producing and all that stuff, you have to put a lot of energy and effort in, and it’s kind of draining. It sucks all the energy out of you. But when you play live, it’s a no-brainer. You just have to perform and have fun with the stuff that you’ve worked hard at."

"For me, it’s a no brainer. We are prepared to put the effort into it, because we know that when we do, the music is better, the show is better, and the audience sees that and responds to it. I can’t understand why people wouldn’t appreciate that and go about it the same way as we do. I love these guys. I truly do. Being with them has made my dreams come true."
