Guys and gals, Vivian's cancer has returned. He needs all of the thoughts, positive vibes, and if you are so inclined-prayers, sent his way. This is such sad news to those of us who are fans of his playing throughout his career.

He will be absent from the the start of the Def Leppard North American tour as he begins treatment once again. Steve Brown will once again step in to play in his place.

Get well Viv and we'll see you on the road in the future....

Thanks for the update , some tunes from Holy Diver popped up on my phone the other day and I still get a kick out of Vivs blistering leads. Hope he can beat this

Big influence on my playing Vivian was. The guy can tear it up. I hope to see him playing again soon.

Man that sucks--All The Bess to Viv--(Rainbow In The Dark) is probally my fave solo of all time--When I hear that solo over the radio it makes me drive faster and puts a great big smile on my face...Thanks Viv for the most awesome solo Ive ever heard....

This is really bad. He's failed chemo already and recurrent Hodgkins frequently isn't curable


Holy Diver had a strong influence on me. I wish him the best
