Rock Cellar Magazine - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Steve Clark

"I just miss him terribly as a person. This is weird; we could sit down and have an eight-hour conversation. He was my best friend. That’s kind of weird; I don’t know any other guys who I could sit down with and have a chat for eight hours and get into a deep philosophical conversation. Plus we were in the same band, so we were having all these same experiences."

Def Leppard Band Friendship

"Def Leppard is a family. We’ve spent more time together than with any blood relative we’ve ever had; my parents included. You spend 16, 18 years with your folks, we’ve been doing this constantly for 30 something years so you get to know each other intimately. It’s the same thing as any kind of friendship or family thing. It changes and goes on."
