(Rock News Desk) Vivian Campbell doesn't want to take part in any of the upcoming Dio tribute albums but not for the reasons most might suspect.

The guitarist, who had an infamously difficult relationship with the iconic singer before moving on to play with Def Leppard and Thin Lizzy, says he doesn't have time to commit to the project. But more important, he doubts anyone can be found to replicate Dio's voice.

"I haven't been asked, but I'm not too sure I'd want to. Even if I did, I'm not available I'm about to go on tour with Def Leppard and I've been playing with Lizzy, so it's a pretty busy schedule," Campbell tells InsideHeavy. "I'd only be interested in playing with the original guys, Vinny Appice on drums, Jimmy Bain on bass and Claude Schnell on keyboards. more on this story
