Last In Line Will Mostly Avoid Dio's Third Album During Tour
Guitarist Vivian Campbell, now with Def Leppard, last week told Classic Rock he aimed to reclaim his heritage by playing songs he co-wrote for the first time since being sacked by Ronnie James Dio in 1986. But he's not ready to extend that to the album he was touring at the time he was fired.
Talking Metal asked Campbell about of their setlist and he said, "Well, we haven't completely finalized it yet but it's basically going to pick itself. There are only nine songs on Holy Diver and I think there's only nine songs on the Last in Line album too.
"The thing about this band was that the Sacred Heart album was very difficult for us all. That's when things really started to go wrong with the band and no one wanted to be in the studio with Ronnie.
"We would literally just come in and do our parts and we wouldn't really hang where as with Holy Diver & Last in Line we were in the studio 24/7 and everyone was committed to making those records. So the Sacred Heart record, we don't look upon it as favorably. We probably won't play too much from that." more on this story
