Live album released by 'super group' consisting of Def Leppard's Phil Collen,
Stone Tmple Pilots' Robert DeLeo, as well as vocalist Debbi Blackwell-Cook and
drummer Forrest Robinson.
Phil Collen, lead guitarist of British rock band Def Leppard and 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
Phil's love and appreciation for the blues since childhood enabled him to move
forward quickly with the band's inception in 2012. "Blues was created out of
something completely different from what we hear today. I grew up listening to
rock music but then I found out it was all based on blues. Jimmy Page, Hendrix,
all of those guys-they got it from blues. Today's musicians miss out on what
blues is completely about. There's a type of 'blues style' but not actual blues
music. I just don't hear true blues anymore unless I go back and listen to
really old music." With that reasoning Phil decided to change the tide of
what he was hearing.
The critical authority, Elmore Magazine said of the band, "If you're into
good old spiritual, emotional and thought-provoking rock n roll, look no further
than Delta Deep."
Screamer Magazine accurately described Delta Deep's music as "Sweltering hot,
sorrow-drenched, deep southern blues."
Axis Magazine declared, "if the goal of (Delta Deep) is to create music that
revives an appreciation for blues music. Mission accomplished."
