DEF LEPPARD's Phil Collen Talks Viva! Hysteria - "We’ve Always Said
Yeah We Could Do High ‘N’ Dry; Hysteria, That’s A Lot More Challenging"




Las Vegas Blogs
spoke with DEF LEPPARD guitarist Phil Collen about their upcoming
nine-show residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Viva! Hysteria
celebrates the band's landmark album Hysteria, which starts March 22nd
and will run through April 10th. Here are a few excerpts from the chat:





Las Vegas Blogs: What prompted the group to do this residency in Vegas at the Hard Rock?


Collen: “A lot of other bands do this stuff, but I think it’s a
little bit more special because Hysteria was one of the diamond albums,
especially in this day and age there are not that many albums that
achieve that kind of status. That’s why it’s so important to us, it’s
such a big selling album. It’s a challenge as well. We’ve never
actually done that before. We’ve always said yeah we could do High ‘n’
Dry. Hysteria, that’s a lot more challenging. A lot of the songs on
there are hard to sing and play at the same time.”


Las Vegas Blogs: What sort of preparation do you have to do to be able to play the entire Hysteria track list live?


Collen: “We’ve been playing several songs off of Hysteria. Even this
summer on the tour we did with Poison we were playing seven of the
songs because we had seven singles off the record… So much went into
that record, that we’ve been playing the hits for 25 years now. Some of
the other tracks on the album, just going back and listening to the
whole thing, you realize just how much went into that record. Obviously
Mutt Lange had a massive influence, and the whole thing about that, so
we’re just totally excited. They are such amazing arrangements that you
forget.”


Las Vegas Blogs: What do you think it was about that album that continues to attract fans today?


Collen:
Mutt Lange is a genius. He said we can do an ultimate rock
album or we can do a rock version of Thriller, where we have seven hit
singles. But to do that, you have to put the extra effort in. The
attitude when the album came out, a lot of people didn’t like it. They
thought, oh this is too pop or they didn’t understand the crossover
because it’s a perfect hybrid between rock and pop. If you look at Mutt
Lange’s track record, his biggest successes are for example, Shania
Twain. He definitely brought country to the masses. He successfully
fused rock, pop music with country, and I never thought I’d see the day.
I remember being in Japan and hearing Shana Twain when I was going up
and down in an elevator. That for us, like I said, it was the perfect
hybrid of pop and rock that was actually acceptable. A lot of rock fans
didn’t like it at first, but by the end of that year everyone had the
record. You couldn’t really escape the whole thing. It was pop music but
done rock. We kicked our ass on it. It was very different from anything
that had come before it actually.”
