Phil Collen Gets Eclectic With Def Leppard/Sex Pistols Supergroup Man Raze

(Gibson) Sure, Phil Collen rocks the six-string for blockbuster '80s group Def Leppard, but nowadays, he's also making heavy sounds in Man Raze. The supergroup features Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook and former Girl bass player Simon Laffy.

Man Raze's latest album, PunkFunkRootsRock, goes well beyond arena rock fare with a mix of sounds that's hard to pinpoint. That's the point, though. As Collen explains, the guys picked the moniker PunkFunkRootsRock because it perfectly fit the eclectic character of the album's songs.

"Paul Cook, our drummer, he was like 'it's a bit punky, it's a bit funky,' and then he was like 'wow PunkFunkRootsRock,'" Collen told Ultimate Classic Rock. "The great thing about Man Raze is that, being in Def Leppard for 30 years this year, obviously we have a style and you can't really stray too far from it. Otherwise fans get very emotional, they get upset and so with Man Raze it's a great excuse to just go where you feel.

"There's definitely rock stuff, there's reggae stuff on there, we like blurring the lines. It's like your iPod, if you have shuffle, you just don't only listen to one type of music all day, hopefully, you've got to be a bit more diverse so that's really what that's about and the title sums it up." more on this story
