Def Leppard Entering Studio in February, Vivian Campbell Also Busy With Solo Album
Apart from winning his cancer battle, Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell is also busy with making new music these days, as he'll be soon hitting the studio with both the Leppard crew and his own band. In a recent Facebook post, the axeman explained: "A few peeps have asked questions about my upcoming recordings, so here are some of the facts: I'm making a rock record (lots of guitar). I intend to sing, however, I may ask a real singer to help out if I fail miserably at the demo stages. I'm also writing for Def Leppard (we all are) as Leppard will be recording new music in February. So, all in all it's a busy time creatively." In a separate post two days ago (December 3), Vivian noted: "I got together with Lou Castro and Glen Sobel today to run through five songs for my new record. We'll be cutting demo tracks [on] December 16. Big excitement! Well, it is for me, at least..." So it's rock, lots of guitars and maybe even a vocal input from Mr. Campbell. Let us know in the comments what you think of such a combo. As for Vivian's cancer battle, the guitarist opened up about his diagnosis in June. A month later, it was confirmed he is officially in remission from the disease and on the road to recovery. The term "in remission" is defined by the US National Cancer Institute as "a decrease in or disappearance of signs and symptoms of cancer. In partial remission, some, but not all, signs and symptoms of cancer have disappeared. In complete remission, all signs and symptoms of cancer have disappeared, although cancer still may be in the body."
