Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen speaks to Mark Taylor about his rise to global stardom with the multi million selling British rock band.

In his autobiography 'Adrenalized Life, Def Leppard And Beyond' Phil Collen talks about his childhood growing up in East London and how his supportive parents gave him his first red Gibson SG on his sixteenth birthday after a young Collen was mesmerised by seeing Deep Purple in concert and David Bowie with Mick Ronson on the TV.

Collen also reveals how he was asked to join Iron Maiden and talks with pride about the band Girl, who Collen was a member of before joining Def Leppard.

Phil Collen talks about the breakthrough success of Def Leppard with the albums 'Pyromania' and 'Hysteria' plus his deep friendship and working relationship with the sadly departed Steve Clark.
