Def Leppard's Vivian Campbell Won't Watch Band's New DVD

(Classic Rock) Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell won't watch the band's new live DVD Viva! Hysteria because he doesn't want to see how ill he looked during his cancer battle.

The band recorded two nights of this year's Las Vegas residency during which they performed their classic album Hysteria in full and released the results on October 21 following a series of cinema screenings.

But Campbell, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma just before the Vegas shows, would rather not see the movie. He tells Rolling Stone: "I don't like watching myself. I took that in consideration when I stood in front of the bedroom mirror pretending to be Marc Bolan.

"I was really, really sick when we filmed this. When I look at pictures I look very pale because I was anaemic and everything. So I'm not in a hurry to see myself on the big screen." A lot more.
