The Joe Elliott Show - 5th July Quotes
"Until then just a little announcement. You may remember a few months back that I mentioned that Vivian Campbell's cancer was in remission and it had gone. Well, he had further tests and sadly it hadn't gone. It had almost gone but not 100 percent which basically means he's back in treatment. But with the full blessing of all his doctors he is on tour with Def Leppard and making a fantastic contribution to the band as always playing and singing magnificently. But let's keep our fingers crossed that this final treatment really rids him of this awful disease."
"On a much much brighter note though for a man obviously knows where he's going and thinks that there is a future. Congratulations to Vivian Campbell and his lovely, lovely bride. Yes, Vivian got married yesterday on the fourth of July in Los Angeles and god bless and congratulations to both Vivian and his new bride Caitlin. On that note we shall end the show with a Vivian Campbell song. We just heard ZZ Top this is Vivian collaborating with his good buddy Billy Gibbons on Vivian's solo record Two Sides Of If little thing called Willin' For Satisfaction. Congrats Viv and Cait. Until next week see ya!."
