Def Leppard Rejuvenated After Vivian Campbell's Health Scare

Def Leppard Rejuvenated After Vivian Campbell's Health Scare

Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has not stopped performing with the band since it was revealed that he has cancer.

For many of the band members, that has lit a fire.  Drummer Rick Allen explains to Rolling Stone, "It reminded me of my own vulnerabilities, and the whole idea of just being courageous in the face of something so daunting. I was just feeling for him, and it reminded me of where I was not too long ago, and it made me do the best I could. He rose to the occasion, and it was like, "F#ck me, I better pull out all the stops." Collectively, it just felt as if the whole band rose to the occasion."

The band will release a concert film, Viva Hysteria.  They recorded it during their residency at the Joint at Las Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
