Def Leppard’s Phil Collen Performs ‘Hysteria’ Acoustic – Exclusive Video

Phil Collen of Def Leppard
Ultimate Classic Rock

Def Leppard and Manraze guitarist Phil Collen stopped by the Ultimate Classic Rock offices recently for an extensive two-part interview, the first half of which you can read right here. Luckily for our writers, he also brought along his guitar and serenaded us with a solo acoustic rendition of the smash title track off Def Leppard’s 1987 album ‘Hysteria.’

As you can see, Collen laughed off a little trip-up in the beginning of the song to deliver a very cool version of the classic love song. The casual skill with which he takes over Joe Elliot’s lead vocal duties makes you realize just how talented he and his bandmates really are, doesn’t it?

Collen’s making the rounds in support of the new album from his other band, Manraze, and in a few days we’ll have video of him performing some of their music as well. In today’s segment of the interview, he talks all about Def Leppard’s upcoming tour with Poison, the likelihood and format of any future Def Leppard music, and how Motley Crue beat them to the Las Vegas residency idea.
