Rock Today - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

2015 Def Leppard Studio Album

"The Leppard record has been well received, like really, really well received. I always said from the get-go, and it's been echoed by a lot of publications who have reviewed the record, I do actually think this is the best Leppard studio album since Hysteria. It really is a very strong record and is so typically Def Leppard so much across the board. Ironically it's the one I've had the least to do with, for various reasons, mostly relating to my health and having to deal with it. I wasn't so involved in the creating of that record. Obviously I played and sang on it but in my 25 years of being a member of Def Leppard this is the one album I contributed least to."

New Def Leppard Music

"It really makes us feel good about the future and really makes us want to continue to make records. I think that's an important thing for a band like Def Leppard, even though the majority of people coming to see Def Leppard aren't interested in new music."
