Episode Info

Episode Info:

Phil Collen, lead guitarist and songwriter for legendary rock band, Def Leppard, joins The Brink of Midnight Podcast with John Brenkus.   Def Leppard is one of only a few bands to receive two Diamond records (over 10 million copies sold for each; for “Hysteria” and “Pyromania”) and have been together for over 36 years. In this special episode, we turn back the clock with Phil Collen as he takes us through his musical journey and the evolution of Def Leppard. At the beginning of our conversation, he graciously sits down with his guitar and breaks down the creation of hits like “Hysteria”, “Pour Some Sugar on Me”, “Armageddon It”, “Love Bites”, “Rock It”, among others, sharing behind-the-scenes stories that will make 80s and rock fans feel like they’re playing and singing right in the studio with Phil.   Raised in London by parents who survived WWWII, he learned at a young age an incredible work ethic and not to take anything for granted. Those values are the foundation of Phil’s every day, whether that’s writing and recording songs, performing in arenas across the globe, being a dad, practicing martial arts, or raising awareness for causes he supports (PETA and Omaze).   Brush off your air guitar skills and get ready to rock with a VIP seat to music history courtesy of Phil Collen!   For full show notes, visit: | Contact: | Connect on Socials: @brinkofmidnight (twitter, instagram, Facebook) and @johnbrenkus_
