Def Leppard's Phil Collen Teaches Master Class At Performing Arts High School

Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen gave a master class at Orange County High School for the Arts in Santa Ana, California earlier this week. The class included an interview with Collen during which he gave examples of the various playing styles and songwriting strategies he has used over his playing career.

"Phil's advice on staying straight and working hard was an important lesson he learned from his life experience. I believe the most important lesson all the students learned wasn't through what Phil said but what he did. He was generous with his time and gave us all an experience we will never forget," said Daryl Hernandez, the school's director of its guitar program.

Def Lep head out on the road this summer with KISS for a 40 date tour beginning June 23 at West Valley, Utah's USANA Amphitheater.
