Tickets There - Vivian Campbell Interview Quote

New Album Recording/Rock Songs

"In the first week we actually got four rock tracks together and that was also a concern of ours coming into this. We wanted to make sure, even though we want to make a very comprehensive, modern Leppard sounding record, we did want to make sure we had the rock element covered and we actually for that out of the way like it was no-one's business in the first week. This is what happens when you play together as a band, you tend to write rock songs as opposed to when you do it individually and you tend to get drawn into doing mid-tempo, little dirgy ballady type stuff. So it's good that we got to play together and somewhat collaborate with each other on the stuff. Still a lot of it has to be determined, but so far we've got the rock element covered and we're getting into some more studio crafted songs here at the moment and we'll be wrapping up here in the next couple of days and pick it up again in May."
