(Rock News Desk) Guns N' Roses guitarist Richard Fortus played a few tracks with Thin Lizzy in Chicago last week and he'll join the band next month when Vivian Campbell returns to Def Leppard.

Campbell revealed the news after his final US appearance with Phil Lynott's reactivated band, currently starring original-era members Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and Darren Wharton alongside Campbell, ex-Whitesnake bassist Marco Mendoza and ex-Almighty frontman Ricky Warwick.

Fortus will take over after Lizzy play at Slaine Castle, Ireland, on May 28. Campbell reports: "Well, that was it: my last US show with Lizzy and it was a great one to end on. New guitarist Richard Fortus came and played a couple of songs. "I have one final gig with them in Ireland, and the very next day we start Def Lep rehearsals." more on this story
