DEF LEPPARD Guitarist To Release Solo Album

Launch Radio Networks reports: DEF LEPPARD guitarist Vivian Campbell will release his first solo album, "Two Sides of If", on September 6. Campbell will be joined on the blues-oriented album by ZZ TOP's Billy Gibbons, singer Joan Osbourne, and former FRANK ZAPPA and MISSING PERSONS drummer Terry Bozzio. "Two Sides of If" features a collection of Campbell's favorite blues songs, including WILLIE DIXON's "I Ain't Superstitious" and "Spoonful", FLEETWOOD MAC's "Like It This Way" and "Willin' For Satisfaction", RORY GALLAGHER's "Calling Card", and MEL LONDON's "Messin' With The Kid".

Gibbons guests on the two FLEETWOOD MAC tracks, while Osbourne performs on "Spoonful". Bozzio plays drums on the entire album.

Prior to joining DEF LEPPARD in 1992 to replace the late Steve Clark, Campbell had played with the band SWEET SAVAGE and the first lineup of DIO in the early '80s.

DEF LEPPARD performs tomorrow (Tuesday, July 26) in Memphis, Tennessee.
