It looks like it’s ON between DEF LEPPARD and GUNS N’ ROSES. Def Leppard guitarist PHIL COLLENdoesn’t like that GnR can command ungodly sums of money, just because they split up 20 years ago.
He says, quote, “I think it’s [effing] lame considering we’ve been hardcore. Our integrity’s still intact, we’ve never split up. We’ve gone through if someone had a little sniffle or something, we soldier on.”
He adds, quote, “Someone dies, someone loses an arm, someone gets cancer, we soldier on . . . I know it’s difficult, but I do think it’s pretty lame when you compare anyone else to us.”
But Phil’s not trying to make this personal. Quote, “I love Guns N’ Roses, I think they’re really cool, I’d love to see Slash and Axland Duff play together. That’s great.”
