Coverdale guests with Delta Deep
Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen streams Private Number from his blues band’s album
David Coverdale appears on the latest track released by Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen’s blues band, Delta Deep.
The Whitesnake frontman recorded guest vocalist for Private Number, which appears on the outfit’s self-titled album.
The Def Lep man lines up beside vocalist Debbi Blackwell-Cook, drummer Forrest Robinson and Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert DeLeo.
Collen says: “Blues was created out of something completely different from what we hear today. I grew up listening to rock music – but then I found out it was all based on blues. Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Ritchie Blackmore, Jimi Hendrix, all of those guys, they got it from the blues.”
Delta Deep is released on June 22 via Mailboat Records, also featuring guest appearances by Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott, and Collen’s ManRaze colleagues Paul Cook and Simon Laffy.
