UnberRock - Online Review Quotes

"Nine nights in to this fourteen date tour, and I cannot think of a place I'd rather be on a Sunday night than stood (OK I'm sat), a few feet away from such a musical tour de force blasting out classics like the opening trio of 'Are You Ready', Waiting For An Alibi' and 'Jailbreak' as if flared hipsters had never gone out of fashion.

'Jailbreak' coincidently was the first time I realised Vivian Campbell was actually on stage, as he casually sauntered forward from his previous backline hugging position to let loose with one of the best guitar solos I've heard in a long long time. And it was his understated yet perfectly complimentary role as guitar counterpoint to Scott Gorham that made me turn to a recently returned from photographic duties Gaz E and say "He's the real find here..." I'm not sure how many will agree with that, but throughout the band's ninety minute set the big money boy certainly had no ego or qualms about playing another guitarists (however many that would have been) music, in fact I think he relished it. Just as much as the "happy as a road hog in the mud" Ricky Warwick who, by the time the band were unleashing 'Don't Believe A Word' was sans guitar and running around like a man half his age."

Amped - Online Review Quote

"Lizzy were always a revolving door of incredible musical talent, former guitarists alone include Gary Moore,Brian Robertson, John Sykes and even Midge Ure, and keeping in tradition, things haven’t changed. The 6 piece lineup consists of original drummer, Brian Downey, the longest serving guitarist, Scott Gorham, the band’s one and only keyboard player, Darren Warton, Vyvian Campbell (Original Dio guitarist, now with Def Leppard), Marco Mendoza (formerly of Blue Murder and Whitesnake amongst others) and Ricky Warwick (voice of The Almighty and one time guitarist of Circus Diablo); there’s no doubting the sheer pedigree and musicianship of the band, who effortlessly work their way through a cherry picked setlist of favourites."
