New Blues Rock Band With Def Leppard’s Phil Collen Releasing Album June 23

Def Leppard’s new album is a bit of a ways off from being released, but Phil Collen is launching a new blues rock project this summer that features a number of very interesting names.

Called Delta Deep, the band also features Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert DeLeo, vocalist Debbi Blackwell-Cook and drummer Forrest Robinson, and if this sample clip from the band’s song “Bang The Lid” is any indication of what’s in store on the self-titled album, then sign us up!

The new album will also feature some special guests including Joe Elliott (wonder how they got him), David Coverdale, Paul Cool and Simon Laffy.  Needless to say, if you’re into blues, you’re going to want to check this out.
