Guitar Center Hollywood in Los Angeles will host a special in-store “Sessions” event with Def Leppard guitarist and longtime Jackson signature artist Phil Collen at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 3.

“I’ll demonstrate, jam on guitar and talk about Def Leppard hits, Man Raze music and even a couple of Cybernauts tunes,” Collen told Jackson. Man Raze is Collen’s trio with bassist Simon Laffy and Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook; Cybernauts is Collens’ David Bowie cover band with Leppard vocalist Joe Elliott and Bowie’s early-’70s Spiders From Mars rhythm section, bassist Trevor Bolder and drummer Mick Woodmansey. The event will also include a Q&A session.

Guitar Center Hollywood is located at 7425 W. Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, Calif., 90046.
