Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has announced he’s begun work on a solo album, while continuing to work on new Def Leppard material.
In a post on his official Facebook page, the guitarist announced that the album will include “lots of guitar” and that he will handle the vocals, however “I may ask a real singer to help out if I fail miserably at the demo stages.”
Campbell also confirmed that Def Leppard is in writing mode at the moment, with studio time planned for February 2014.
Campbell is working with bassist Lou Castro and drummer Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper, Sixx: A.M.), both of whom are members of Campbell’s cover band, Sir Sodoff & The Train Wrecks.
Last month Campbell announced that he is in remission from Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which he was diagnosed with earlier in the year.
