Overdrive Mag - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

Playing The Full Hysteria Album Live

"We’ll be playing songs from the Hysteria album that have always featured in every show because there were so many big hits off the album. Personally, I am looking forward to playing the ones that we very very rarely play. You know we don’t always play Gods Of War. You know as a guitarist I enjoy that. Don’t Shoot Shotgun, Run Riot and Love and Affection, those are the ones that we would normally play in a Def Leppard show but it’s always fun to do something a little bit different. And I’m sure the other guys feel the same. It’s nice to break out of the routine."

Scorpions/Australian Tour

"As far as the Australian tours go, that was put together by promoters. I don’t know the guys from Scorpions. I know Def Leppard played with them before I joined the band."
