“The 30-year anniversary of Hysteria, is going crazy. The response on that has been incredible. It was really cool to document everything, especially looking back on it,” he said. “I got to play ‘Hysteria’ last week with Joe Satriani, and it was really cool. That show was a lot of fun,” he added.
On his plans for the future, Collen said, “We are going to be busy. We have new Def Leppard material that we are starting to write, which is really exciting. We’ve got new Delta Deep material as well, and a live Delta Deep album coming out soon.”
