Vivian Campbell launches new rock series on BBC Radio Ulster

Belfast-born guitarist Vivian Campbell launches a new six-part series on BBC RadioUlster.

Vivian is best known as the guitarist with 100 million album selling rock act Def Leppard, who are currently on a world tour.

Over the course of the series, which begins on Tuesday, September 18, Vivian plays the music that has inspired him throughout his life, as he shares stories from his journey with Dio, Whitesnake and Def Leppard.

Listeners can look forward to hearing the greatest rock music in the world, along with some Irish classics, which have caught Vivian’s ear and those of his colleagues.

“I’m thrilled and honoured to be doing this series of radio shows for BBC Radio Ulster,” said Viv.

“It’s been a wonderful reminder to me of the joy and power of music and how it’s shaped my life. Like pieces of a puzzle, each song completes another part of the picture and that excitement is felt all over again.”
