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”. Phil’s love and appreciation for the blues since childhood enabled him to move forward quickly with the band’s inception in 2012.
The band also features Debbi Blackwell-Cook (vocalist/songwriter), Stone Temple Pilot’s Robert DeLeo (bassist), Forrest Robinson (drummer), and Helen L. Collen (songwriter). The band released their self-titled debut in 2015.
The CD includes 11 excellent Blues and Rock numbers and sees cameo appearances from none other than Whitesnake’s David Coverdale, Collen’s bandmate Joe Elliott and Collen’s ManRaze bandmates Paul Cook (Sex Pistols) and & Simon Laffy.
The DVD portion of this live CD/DVD was filmed at Daryl’s House (ie. Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates fame) in April 2016.
