About Entertainment - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

Current Album/New Music Recording In 2017

"I'm very encouraged by the response. I think as a result of that, we'll probably go back into the studio a lot sooner. Probably by next year, we'll be back in working on another record. The thing about the Def Leppard record, I honestly believe it's the best record Leppard has made in the 24 years that I've been with the band."

2016 Tour Plans

"Yeah. The bad news was, Joe had a serious issue with his throat and we had to reschedule those shows. The good news is that he won't need surgery. He just needs rest for a couple months, so we've rescheduled those dates for May. We'll go back out in May and then we'll take a couple more weeks off. Then we'll start our scheduled summer tour in late June sometime."

The Slang Album

"It was my first record with Leppard, so I was in a very strange position of not wanting to rock the boat too much. I've never been that kind of a person. I just was sitting there taking it all in and trying to get up to speed with what was going on, but I don't think any of us really knew what was going on."
