It's my distinct pleasure to host one of the nicest guys in rock and roll in Episode 28 of NSTS, Def Leppard guitarist extraordinaire Phil Collen.

Phil and I cover a lot of ground in our chat - Hysteria's 30th anniversary, Sting's sublime bass lines, that he was asked to join Iron Maiden in 1981, his blues band Delta Deep, what he learned about being a guitar player from Mutt Lange, and the fact that my high school art class pencil sketch of he and Steve Clark was given an A+. Wish I had saved that thing. 


Collen's playlist:

David Bowie - Moonage Daydream

Sex Pistols - God Save The Queen

Al Green - Tired of Being Alone

The Police - Walking on the Moon

Sly and the Family Stone - If You Want Me To Stay

Jimi Hendrix - Fire

Led Zeppelin - When The Levee Breaks
