Def Leppard Members Sharing Lead Vocals On New Album

(Classic Rock) Vivian Campbell reportedly revealed in a new interview that he and his Def Leppard bandmates will all have a lead vocal on their upcoming album. He's been recovering from stem-cell treatment to combat his Hodgkin's lymphoma and laid down tracks for the follow-up to 2008's Songs From The Sparkle Lounge with his Leppard bandmates over two sessions.

The guitarist tells The Province: "The first thing we did was go into the studio and set up live. I know a lot of bands do it, but we haven't done it since 1996."

He continues, "There's a lot of talk before we make an album. With this album there wasn't as much talking but there is an awful lot of experimentalism that goes on with a Leppard record. Once we find our direction, we're very quick. Everybody brings something to the table."

The publication says that everyone in the band has a lead vocal on the effort. "We've never done that before. It's diverse, but it all sounds like Def Leppard. It's the best album we've made in 23 years," said Campbell. Read more here.
