Belfast Telegraph - Joe Elliott Interview Quote

Vivian Campbell's Health - (mid-November comment)

"He's just out of hospital. He had stem cell surgery and he's home about 48 hours. From what I gather, it all went really, really well. He has to stay away from pretty much everything, especially people, because his immune system's going to be zero right now.

"But we don't start work again until April, and he's done all his stuff for the album, so it's a good time for him to recuperate and get his strength back together."

Meeting Ian Hunter In 1980

"The second time I saw him, Leppard were a band and I went to see him at the Ritz in New York on one of our days off. He was very accommodating, very nice - just a decent guy."
