Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell, is still undergoing treatments for Hodgkins lymphoma and hopefully will be back ready for a big 2015..
Singer Joe Elliott told Billboard they’ve got about 15 new songs “in various, different degrees of being finished.” They “only set out to write three or four songs in February” but ended up with 12. Elliott’s “still trying to figure out how and why” they were suddenly so prolific, but thinks “one of the whys is we haven’t really written since 2007, 2008, so we’re backed up.”
Elliott says the hope is that Campbell will be done with the current round of cancer treatments mid-month and will be involved in finishing the new material next year.
