Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell was recently interviewed by the Newcastle press and mentioned the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

Vivian spoke to Simon Rushworth of Chronicle Live ahead of the band's show in Newcastle, England.

He talked about owning the Hysteria album in 1987, playing the songs live, working out the guitar parts with Phil, the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, continuing to play through the 90s, joining the band in 1992 and his ongoing health issues.

Vivian said the band were very flattered to be nominated for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame which of course they are now being inducted into in March.

Chronicle Live - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

"We’re very flattered to be nominated. It’s a big deal to a lot of people – especially in the US. It’s considered a big honour over there and it would be."

"The band has been around for a long time now and Def Leppard has enjoyed major, major success. So you could say that it’s about time we were in the mix!."

Playing The Full Hysteria Album Live

"I had to buy Hysteria again and it was one of the first CDs I owned,” he explained. “But I’m glad I did. It was tailor-made for the digital era and it took on a whole new life on CD."

"I’d pick up on some new guitar parts that I’d completely missed first time around and I realised that Hysteria was a very complex record. I loved it."
