NEW LEPPARD VAULT COLLECTION – Phil Collen Joins The Band 🤘

🚨 NEW LEPPARD VAULT COLLECTION! 🚨

In July 1982, Phil Collen walked into Battery Studios to audition for Def Leppard. He plugged in his Ibanez Destroyer and nailed “Stagefright” in the first take. He had similar results with “Foolin’,” “Photograph,” and “Rock of Ages,” and then impressed the band even further with his singing chops. Next thing he knew, Phil was on the Pyromania tour and the album was catching fire all around the world. “Okay,” Phil thought, “I guess I’m in the band.” 🎸

In July 1982, Phil Collen joined Def Leppard and helped boost the band to superstardom. In the latest Leppard Vault collection, we celebrate Phil’s earliest days with the band. Explore NOW at LeppardVault.com 🤘

Phil Collen Releases Guitar Shred Video “Quadrant 4”

Get ready to air guitar 🎸….Check out Phil’s new video “Quadrant 4” with his Delta Deep bandmates Forrest Robinson (drums) and Craig Martini (bass).

“I recruited Drummer Forrest Robinson and bass player Craig Martini to accompany me on this track. We did a shred guitar, hard rock update of the 1973 jazz rock fusion classic “Quadrant 4”. I’ve always loved the version from Billy Cobham’s Spectrum album that featured Tommy Bolin on guitar. We (Delta Deep) opened up our set with this song every night on Joe Satriani’s G3 tour in 2018 and it was always a breakneck blast. I also wanted to let everyone know about some of the stuff I’ve been doing during Covid. This is just one of the amazing compositions I’ve recorded. More to come…” -Phil

Joe Elliott’s – All Time Favorite Songs Featured on DB’s Finestkind Playlists

Legendary British A&R Manager David Bates presents an ever-expanding collection of exquisitely curated playlists which Joe recently created his list of his 100 All Time Favorite Songs! 

Listen now: HERE

From Joe:

“David Bates (DB) is famous in the industry for discovering & championing new talent. His signings are legendary, including Def Leppard. He used to make CDs of all the music he loved for each year & send them to you for Christmas, db’s finestkind.  To be on this list either as an artist or as recipient was an honour. We all looked forward to db’s finestkind. Eclectic and rewarding, they are always a deep dive into 12 months of releases. Now he’s made a web site.”

“Anyway he’s asked some people to curate their guest list “all time 100 Songs”. Obviously this is invidious for anyone, let alone a maker of music. Taste is fluid and fickle. But this is heart on my sleeve the songs that made me. That sustain me.  Some cheese in there, some cliches, some well worn classics. You won’t find anything to make me look cool”

“Some you’ll like. Some hate. Some be confused by. Maybe. But have a listen. 

And click to like and follow db’s finestkind on Spotify. PLEASE!  Spotify – db’s finestkind  I said I’d get him more followers! Music is my way of entering the world. Here’s my musical world (so far) compressed to 100 tracks” ❤️ 😎🎤👍
