The Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen talked in an interview with Radioacktiva Colombia (Transcribed by Blabbermouth) about how the feeling of touring with the American Hard Rock band Mötley Crüe.
The two groups are touring together for a few years already and in February kicked-off their World Tour that will happen in North America, South America and Europe this year.
“It’s great. We’ve known ’em for years. I’ve known all of ’em since the ’80s — early ’80s. We played with them first time in ’83. It’s great, it’s like being at school with all of your best friends. It’s really fun. We’ve got this [shared chartered] airplane [on the tour] that all of us are on there. And it’s great.”
“There’s two bands that are still around. And I think it means more as you get older. There’s this thing being young, ta-da-da, but there’s something about really doing it still later on that makes you — I don’t know — appreciate it more,” Phil Collen said.
