Vivian To Stay True To Def Leppard

(Rock News Desk) Guitarist Vivian Campbell won't play sets with Thin Lizzy when they open for Def Leppard at two shows in Ireland this summer.

The Irishman says his loyalties lie with his "day job" outfit and it wouldn't be right to pull double shifts on June 7 in Belfast and June 8 in Dublin so Lizzy are currently looking for a replacement.

Campbell joined Scott Gorham and co after Def Lep singer Joe Elliott recommended him for the job, and says he hasn't enjoyed playing so much since he was a teenager. But he always knew his time with Phil Lynott's legacy outfit would end. more on this story
