Coleraine Times - Vivian Campbell 29th September 2017 Interview Quotes

On his OH Yeah Legend Award

"I am not used to getting awards. I am not a celebrity, the only people who know me are the hard rock fans and guitar junkies. "I have had a very steady and colourful career and this means a lot to me because it is flattering to be recognised by your fellow countrymen."
