Vivian Campbell Pays Tribute to Jeff Beck

11 Apr 2023

In a thoughtful interview with Total Guitar this week, Vivian Campbell of Def Leppard pays tribute to Jeff Beck and talks about how his guitar playing inspired, innovated and intimidated those who were to follow in his footsteps. Campbell recalls the first time he saw Beck live, his use of new techniques, and how he was the 'master exponent of reverb', and how he truly was the guitarist's guitarist. 
'It was equally inspiring and depressing to witness him live. You go there thinking you're a guitar player and leave realising you're a guitar owner!' - Vivian Campbell

Campbell and his bandmates recount the story of Def Leppard in Definitely: The Official Story of Def Leppard, a landmark anthology narrated by the band and illustrated with hundreds of photographs and items of memorabilia from their personal archives. Available to pre-order now as a bookstore edition and as exclusive Publisher's Copies.
