Phil Collen dating history

Who can be romantically linked to Phil Collen...and how closely?

(e.g. Phil Collen)

(e.g. Kevin Bacon)

 

But you shouldn`t forget what it`s about - for a musician, it is about self-expression. If you can make it work in a band format, it`s incredible.

 

The big thing that everyone forgets, you`re famous and on TV and everything, but I think there`s something very rewarding to be able to write a song, record it, and have it turn out as you heard it in your head, or even better.

 

Phil replaced Pete Willis in 1982 during the recordings of "Pyromania". After Steve Clark`s tragic death in 1991 and before Vivian Campbell joined, Phil took care of all the guitar parts during the recordings of the 1992 album "Adrenalize". Since then, Phil developed himself as one of the main songwriters of the band.

 

His influences are Ritchie Blackmore,Jimmy Hendrix,Larry Coryell and Al DiMeola.
