I totally forgot that during the main section of Rocket, they launch into a Whole Lotta Love, which sounds really cool. Back to work on this page that is NEVER ending. Bah!

Def Leppard - Live In Sheffield (1993)

Great show and a solid Set List. This is good for a few reasons, but the biggest is Joe Elliot. This was still "early" enough into their career where he hadn't blown out his vocal cords, which makes it very hard for me to listen to any Def Leppard concert after the year 1997-98. By then it was just a complete mess. Even though Joe's voice in this concert can hit some of the high notes, there are a few instances when you can start to hear the strain. Of all the DL concerts out there, I think I still prefer In The Round.

Def Leppard's Hysteria Las Vegas Residency - Behind the Scenes

Pretty good interview explaining their new Vegas Residency. I'm shocked Def Leppard got the call before KISS to do something like this. I hope it works out well for the Lepp's and I hope that Joe's voice is sounding better. If it has improved substantially, I'd actually make my way out to Vegas to check out the show.

I picked up the recent Viva Hysteria CD/DVD from the library.

I'm glad I got to view it before I went to purchase it. This just seemed like a very robotic soulless performance.

Not that there wasn't intense energy or quality. It was just like, uh, yeah a band is playing in Vegas. What band? Uh, I don't... loud.

They've got the song list nailed after all these years. The stage and background is Vegas. Joe's voice sounds fine, though a little overpowered by the music. It's just not something I'd really put in to watch more than once.

I can't believe it's online...

Ugh. I couldn't even get past the second song. The bass is waaaaaaaaay overblown for Women and Rocket. No matter how much and played with the EQ, I couldn't get it to level out. What a shame as I was looking forward to this.

Def Leppard Guitarist Vivian Campbell's Cancer Has Returned

Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell revealed Saturday that his cancer has returned and will force him to miss the opening dates of the band's summer tour.

"I'm saddened by the fact that my cancer has returned," Campbell posted on his Facebook page over the weekend. "However, I'm beyond consolation that its return will prevent me from being able to do my job for a while."

Continued Campbell: "I'm still working on a schedule of treatment with my doctors, but I will see you all very soon. My apologies."

The 52-year-old musician's announcement came just days before Def Leppard was to begin their summer amphitheater tour with Styx and Tesla.

However, the band's opening show Tuesday in Tampa, Florida, will go on as scheduled, according to Rolling Stone, with Trixter guitarist Steve Brown once again filling in for Campbell.

Campbell will only miss the first few shows of the tour, a rep for Def Leppard told Entertainment Weekly, as his treatment regimen will be tailored to allow him to continue to work.

Campbell was first diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, which affects the lymphatic system, in 2013.

"I feel fortunate that my cancer sent me an alarm call in the form of 'the cough that wouldn't quit,'" Campbell wrote on Facebook in 2013 while in the midst of chemotherapy. "Otherwise, how would I have known?"

He wrote the following November that he was "officially in remission from Hodgies," and in 2014, Campbell stated the cancer was still in remission although his excitement was tempered.

"I'm trying not to get too excited about it as I heard that same phrase late last year only to be disappointed again a few months after when it returned," he wrote on Facebook. "The plan is to do a stem cell transplant as soon as the tour is finished."

Just after completing his chemotherapy in 2013, Campbell told Rolling Stone that he was playing guitar "better than I've ever played in my life."

"Unlike an athlete, it's not like a physical thing where your body packs in when you're 30. You actually get better and better," Campbell said. "And also having this whole f---ing chemo and cancer bollocks, the fact I've been able to work through it has really helped me mentally. And I'm really enjoying playing my instrument again, which I wouldn't have honestly been able to say 10 years ago."
