The 13th Floor - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

Touring With The Scorpions

"First time for me personally. I’ve never shared a bill with Scorpions – I’m a big, big fan of Matthias Jabs, the guitar player, so I’ll be looking to cob a couple of licks from him, when he’s not watching. I’ll be looking over his shoulder. It should be fun, you know, should be a good, good package."

Joining Def Leppard In 1992

"We played a bit of music together. But it wasn’t just about that, you know. We went to dinner together, we went to the movies together, we went and played football on a Sunday morning, I’d organized a pickup game. So you know, we just were kinda hanging out, and getting to know each other’s temperaments and personalities, because it really is very, very unique band. And the way that the band works, creatively, is very, very unique in itself, and… we had to make sure that both sides of things were going to work out."
