102.3 WBAB - Vivian Campbell Interview Highlights Transcript

Solo Album

"I am working on a solo record as well and I don't know when that's gonna come out. That's kind of a slow project but I'm writing a lot of songs."

New Def Leppard Music/Recording Plans

"But more importantly I mean Def Leppard need to put out some new music. You know we're so long overdue coming out with something new. We're actually embarrassed about it. I just was with Rick Allen and Phil Collen yesterday and we were talking about it at dinner last night. So we're excited about that. We're gonna actually start recording some new Leppard music in January. But like I say it's long overdue. So yeah there's a lot of stuff going on you know we try to keep busy."

2014 Def Leppard Summer Tour

"We are gonna tour next summer for sure yeah. We'll be back."

"It's a definite plan. We're gonna record in January. I don't think there's anyway we'd have a new album done in time for a summer tour. But we could at least knock out a song or two before a summer tour."

"So yeah in January we're getting together and we're gonna write something and get it out there."

Second Las Vegas Residency/Pyromania Album

"Yeah actually we had such a great experience in Vegas the whole thing was really great for us. I think it's fair to say that the promoters there enjoyed having us and yeah there's been talk about having us back. I don't think that would be next year obviously but it's certainly something we're gonna do again yeah. I think we will yes. So no prizes for guessing which one will be next."
