The Minaret Online - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Future Def Leppard Plans?

"We’ve got a huge tour coming up. We’re releasing the catalog and a bunch of people have never heard this stuff. We’re touring the whole catalog basically. We’re playing Hysteria in England and Japan, we’re going out with Journey in May in the U.S. There’s a lot happening. I just finished producing the Tesla album—that’s mixed and mastered, that should be out in May. That’s phenomenal and really intense. It sounds like you’ve got Queen, Zeppelin, Aerosmith, The Beatles, and AC/DC all mixed up. It’s pretty amazing."

G3 Tour Delta Deep Setlist

"I’m doing some Delta Deep stuff but I kick off with Quadrant Four, which is an instrumental off a Billy Cobham album from the early ‘70s. I do Yo To Joe, the song I did at G4 that Joe played on with me. Then we bring Debbi Blackwell-Cook out and do some Delta Deep stuff. It’s a different flavor. Then John Petrucci comes out and it’s a different flavor again. Then Joe gets up and it’s a completely different flavor."
