Phil Collen net worth: Phil Collen is an English musician and songwriter who has a net worth of $20 million dollars. Phil Collen was born in Hackney, London, England, and began playing guitar when he was in his early teens. He subsequently dropped out of school to focus on a career in music. He played for a number of bands early in his career, and began to make a name for himself performing with the group, Girl. In the early 80s, he was invited to join Def Leppard, and his excellent working relationship with fellow Def Leppard guitarist, Steve Clark, gave Def Leppard its distinctive dual guitar sound. The pair became known as the "Terror Twins". He has released 10 albums with Def Leppard, as well as two albums with his side project, Man Raze. He has also guest-performed on a number of albums and produced albums for BB Steal and Sheer Greed.
Philip Kenneth "Phil" Collen (born 8 December 1957) is the co-lead guitarist and one of the backing vocalists for English rock band Def Leppard. He joined the band in 1982 following the departure of Pete Willis.

Collen was born in Hackney, London, England. He got his first guitar from his cousin David Pilley, who said "he used to just sit in his bedroom just playing it". Then, at the age of 16, Phil got his first guitar (a red Gibson SG), taught himself how to play, and left school to pursue a career in music. He then joined a line-up of early bands including Lucy, Tush, Dumb Blondes, and Girl. During his tenure at Girl, Collen's career began rising, spurred by the relative success of the Girl albums Sheer Greed and Wasted Youth, which allowed Collen the opportunity to play at more significant venues.
A young Phil Collen can also be seen on the back cover of Deep Purple??s classic live album Made in Japan as the live photo is actually taken at the Brixton Academy in London, UK, a concert Collen attended, and not in Japan.
Before Collen's entrance to Def Leppard, he had been previously asked to consider joining the band by Steve Clark and Joe Elliott, whom he knew at the time. Despite this invitation, there was no need to replace Pete Willis, and as a result, Collen stayed as a member of Girl.
After Willis was fired, Joe Elliott called and asked Collen to audition performing the solo on "Photograph" in one take during the recording sessions of Pyromania. Soon after, Collen officially joined the band, impressing both producer Mutt Lange and the rest of the band with his ability at playing the guitar. He and fellow guitarist Clark quickly bonded, becoming close friends and leading to the trademark dual-guitar sound of Def Leppard. He and Clark became known as the "Terror Twins," in recognition of their talents. By this time, Collen had also become noted for his trademark bare-chested stage appearances.
During the 1980s, Collen quit drinking alco
