Interviewing Phil Collen of Def Leppard!

Dr. Matthew NagraPodcasts

I had the absolute pleasure of sitting down (virtually) with Phil Collen, co-lead guitarist for the legendary rock band, Def Leppard!  At 64 years old, Phil is known for his impressive physique and physical fitness, but what many people don’t know is that he achieved and maintains his fitness as a vegan! As a vegan myself, I wanted to chat with him about everything veganism, nutrition, fitness, and of course music.

Topics include:

  • The Stadium Tour with Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Poison, Joan Jett, and The Classless Act.
  • The Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert with The Foo Fighters.
  • How Def Leppard manages to sound so great live!
  • When and why Phil became vegetarian.
  • When he transitioned to veganism.
  • Difficulty eating a plant-based diet while travelling.
  • Why Phil quit drinking and how his life has changed because of it.
  • What Phil does for fitness.
  • And much much more!

I hope you enjoy this discussion, and if you do, please like, share, and comment on the video to let me know!
