Ultimate Guitar - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

Last In Line II Album

"I genuinely believe that this album shows growth and development and ambition compared to the 'Heavy Crown' album, our first record [from 2016].

"And that's one of the simple reasons why I wanted to name it 'II.' I know it's not an original title, it's been done many times before, but it really represents a second album for me and I wanted to kind of simplify it.

Dio Influence/Live Songs

"And by the time we were touring in 1984, with the 'Last in Line' record, we were playing less Black Sabbath and less Rainbow. We still had some of it in the show all the way through my career with Ronnie. We were still playing a certain amount of Black Sabbath and Rainbow songs. But with each successive record, we were including more of the original Dio material.

"And the same is true with Last in Line. Now with the second album, we'll be able to include more of our original material and play less of the Dio songs. But we'll never completely move away from that. That's still the heritage of this band. And I think nobody will play these songs as well as Vinny and I."
