Music Radar - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

Worst Gig Journey

"Two car rides, one very long flight, two trains and a broken elevator. All to get from Los Angeles to northern Germany in the middle of winter to play one three-minute song on a crappy TV show. Utter shite!."

Def Leppard Tour Rider

"The Def Leppard rider is sumptuous, with organic veggies and expensive wines, and so on. Leppard play in big sold-out arenas around the world and as we have a couple of vegans, two meat-eaters and one in-betweeny (me), we have a very complex and detailed rider."

Favourite Venue?

"Fortunately, there have been very, very many. A real standout from the past, however, was the old Glasgow Apollo. The balcony used to bounce it was equally frightening and fascinating to watch this while on stage. Alas, they tore it down."
