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.” ğŸŽ¸

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 🤘
