Def Leppard Guitarist Phil Collen: "Everyone’s still copying Britney Spears"
Rock legend Phil Collen recognising the huge influence Britney has made in todays music scene.
When you hear today’s bands, what kind of legacy stamp can you hear that has transferred from Def Leppard’s music to the music of today?
When anyone has a big album, everyone copies it, whether it’s Nirvana, Def Leppard, Lady Gaga, everyone absolutely copies it. Everyone’s still copying Britney Spears, it’s really interesting. She actually started a huge trend and they’re still trying to do this. I listen to the L.A. radio stations and there’s all these girls singing about being a bad girl and all this stuff and it all wants to be Britney. It’s very interesting.
