Phil Collen's explains:

Paul Salfen talks to Phil Collen of Def Leppard and Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots about their project “Delta Deep.”

Phil Collen, lead guitarist of British rock band Def Leppard & alternative roots/rock band Manraze, started Delta Deep as an extreme blues project. The band has been likened to “Aretha Franklin & Chaka Khan performing with Led Zeppelin”. Collen met vocalist Debbi Blackwell-Cook in 2010. She not only performed at his wedding but is also his wife Helen’s godmother. Blackwell-Cook’s performance history includes theatre, a stint as lead singer in an 80’s r-n-b band, background vocalist for Michael Buble and Gregory Hines and singing for Pope John Paul II. Stone Temple Pilots’ bassist Robert DeLeo completes the soulful quartet and lends his fiery and melodic bottom end sounds to the group’s diversified catalog. DeLeo’s love of jazz & Motown styled rhythm & blues offers a stealthy foundation that allows Delta Deep to showcase a dramatic range of untouchable musical movement. And with DeLeo’s entry the harmonious puzzle is complete.
