Music & Musicians - Phil Collen/Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

Vivian - "It was harder for them than for me. It wasn't the first time I had stepped into another band, whereas they had never gone onstage without Steve. I think that was frightening for them. As a result, we rehearsed for about two months before my first gig with the band. I think that was more for Def Leppard's benefit than for mine. They knew I could play. A lot of the vetting process was about the personalities, and whether their personalities would work with mine."
