Vivian Campbell Regrets Mudslinging With Ronnie James Dio

(Classic Rock) Vivian Campbell regrets the mudslinging between him and former bandmate Ronnie James Dio and he's aiming to reclaim ownership of Dio songs he wrote, but couldn't even bring himself to listen to for many years.

The pair had a musically successful, but personally difficult, relationship in Dio between 1982 and 1986, when Campbell was fired. He went on to play with Whitesnake before replacing Steve Clark in Def Leppard in 1992.

When Dio died in 2010 the guitarist said he was "numb" to the news, partly because his mother had died the previous week. Since then he's reformed the original Dio lineup with Vinny Appice, Claude Schnell and Jimmy Bain who was arrested for drugs offences last week.
