Star Advertiser - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Band Of Brothers

"“We have a very strong connection. I’m very protective of my brothers. We’ve been through so much together."

Real Live Backing Vocals

"We all did backing vocals, but we weren’t that great until Viv got in the band. You know, he’s a really good singer, and we worked on that approach. We really use that as an instrument. Some bands have a keyboard player, we have vocals."

Mutt Lange

"We pretty much owe everything to him."
