DEF LEPPARD: Campbell’s Cancer Returns
Def Leppard is together this month working on songs for a new album as well as rehearsing for their summer tour with KISS, but guitarist Vivian Campbell is not with them. He is once again undergoing treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
“I’m doing good,” says Campbell. “It seems to be, kind of, coming back again. But I’m not concerned about it. I mean, it’s just a process. It always was a little bit touch-and-go…but it’s absolutely nothing I’m concerned about, but it’s something I need to start the process, I need to get a handle on, so that I am free and clear to tour this summer.”
The tour starts June 23rd in Salt Lake City, Utah. Def Leppard plans another recording session for their next album in November and hope to release it next spring.
