Got to see Vivian Campbell and LAST IN LINE last night.
It was a great show. The sound and playing was just awesome. It is always great to see such amazing musicians in such small venues.
I highly recommend people go see the show.
The new/2016 album/cd is also really good.
I have video. Sadly most of the video's footage features a large obstacle, of an EPIC, 1980's, super mullet, that would give Billy Ray Cyrus envy.
Vivian is one hell of a guitar player. It is good to see him playing metal again.
I like DL, but Vivian just shred's in Last in Line.
He played his black LP all night through 2 Engle 1/2 stacks.
A very simple and great sounding guitar rig.

I know he played LPs during the Dio years. When I saw the Last in Line tour, think he used Charvels and others as well live.

I would like to see this, thanks for the recommendation. I used to go to shows every week, but I’m so out of the loop I don’t know who’s touring any more.

My wife loves Marilyn Manson for some reason, went to the recent show in NY, guy was drugged out, couldn’t even get through 1 full song, had a tantrum and left the stage after a half hour. Should leave it to the real professionals.

He´s playing LPs for a couple years now especially with DL - gotta say that there´s a trend to more classical guitars with some shredders (Lesterians: John Norum, Adrian Vandenberg, Vivian Campbell).

One of my favorite albums still is his Riverdogs CD.

I´m glad that he bested his cancer finally :thumbs .

Vivian started out playing Les Paul's.
When he was a kid he saved all his money waiting to buy a Les Paul std. He also got a loan from a friend to help him get one.
When a Les Paul Deluxe arrived at his local music store he bought it. Not wanting to wait for a Standard to come in.
He tore out the mini-buckers, routed it for regular humbuckers and painted it black. He used it on all the Dio albums, and he is still using and touring with this guitar. The black Les Paul in these videos and on tour with him is this same exact guitar.
He has the serial # memorized. He started using this guitar again in Def Leppard. He retired it years ago, but brought it back for the Last in Line recordings and tours.
He has endorsed many guitars over the years.
Charvel (Dio), BC Rich (after Dio), Rand (WS), Blaze (WS), Kramer (WS), Tom Anderson (DL,RD), Yamaha, and recently Gibson (DL).
The funny thing is he likes Mutt's.
He get's cheaper Les Paul's and Mod's them and paints them whatever he wants and likes at the time.
That's kind of cool. Not a guitar snob guy. Just uses them as they were meant to be used. A tool for a musician.

Excuse the crappy video.
My wife took this video. She was in front of me, she is only 5 feet tall she was holding the camera over her head. Not bad though. We were 3 people back from the front near Vivian. Right in front of the main speakers. I am surprised the audio is not worse.
