Phil Collen/SA Current - September 2022 Interview Quotes

The Stadium Tour

"We were actually in Pennsylvania for production rehearsals, and I realized this was the best live band I've ever heard in my life."

"This is us. We recorded it and played with the lights, lasers and God knows what other production stuff. We've never sounded this good."

"Joe has never sung this good. Rick Allen has never played the drums [so] well, and we've never played this well as a band."

Diamond Star Halos

"We had no kids at home and actually experienced the most creative period artistically that we've ever had."
