Def Leppard's Phil Collen Forms Accidental Blues Band
Collen tells Artisan News: "When Debbi is round the house she sings all the time, and I've got guitars in every room. It naturally started going into stuff, and before you knew it we were doing Motown songs.
"We auctioned a guitar off and performed five acoustic songs, Motown blues things, and everyone was freaking out, going, 'Oh my God, are you going to do an album? Can we get this somewhere?' So we started writing songs.
"It's very organic and natural. It's just people you want to play with."
