Def Leppard's Vivian Campbell Undergoes Back Surgery


Here's sending well wishes to Vivian Campbell after the Def Leppard guitarist revealed that he is recovering from spine surgery undergone earlier this month.

Speaking to "Trunk Nation," Campbell admitted he was wearing an "ice pack and a back brace" while sitting for the interview.

Noting that the band has some upcoming shows, Campbell jokes, "I'm gonna be moving very slowly. But I know that I can get on stage and I can play guitar and I can sing, so that's all I need to do."

Diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2013, Campbell says the cancer is in a "holding pattern" and that he receives monthly infusion treatments to fight it from City Of Hope.
