KFIX Rock News: Def Leppard Guitarist Vivian Campbell Is In Remission

vivianUNDATED (AP) – Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell is reporting some progress in his fight against Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

He writes on his Facebook page he had a series of tests and he’s officially in remission.

“For anyone who gives a toss, after doing another PET scan and all the other follow up tests, then getting a second opinion etc., I’m officially in remission from Hodgies,” wrote Campbell.

“That’s the good news. The bad news is: I no longer have an excuse to not go to the gym.”

Campbell announced in June he was undergoing chemotherapy to treat his condition.

The guitarist remained upbeat throughout his treatment, and even when he broke the news to the world.
