Speaking in a recent interview with Jasmin Laine from 92.1 CITI Radio, Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has revealed the reason of why Def Leppard is so special for rock music.
He said that ‘There’s no other band on the planet like DEF LEPPARD.’ Here’s the statement:
“Well, Def Leppard is a thoroughly unique band. There’s no other band on the planet like Def Leppard. I’ve worked with a lot of artists, but I’ve been with Def Leppard now for 27 years as the ‘new guy.’ And everything about Def Leppard, every aspect about the band, is thoroughly unique to Def Leppard.
There’s a very, very serious work ethic within the band. That was the first thing I noticed 27 years ago when I first met all the guys. I’d known Joe [Elliott, vocals] socially as a friend for a few years, but we’d never played music together until I joined the band. And then meeting the other guys…
Coming in compared to other acts, I really, really noticed that every aspect of Def Leppard’s career is just taken very, very seriously. All the T’s are crossed, all the I’s are dotted.
[It] doesn’t matter if it’s a live performance or choosing the setlist or songwriting or the recording process, everything about it is just meticulous and done to the highest degree and as good as it can possibly be. Good is never good enough for Def Leppard. We’re always trying to reinvent the wheel.”
