In a new Interview with Graspop Metal Meeting, DEF LEPPARD guitarist Vivian Campbell spoke about what is lacking in the current music scene, especially the new bands.
Here’s the new statement:
“You’ve gotta find the right balance between being good at your craft and still having the right attitude,” he said:
“When I hear a lot of bands — not necessarily rock bands, but all sorts of different genres; bands who come out in this day and age — a lot of ’em, what is missing… I mean, they have talent, they can write songs, they can sing, they can play, but they don’t have b*lls.
He further added:
And you listen to something back from the ’90s or the ’80s or ’70s, there was something earthy about it, there was an intent you had to have,” he explained.
“Phil [Collen, fellow DEF LEPPARD guitarist] is 61. I’m not far behind. We’re all at a certain level and we’ve gotten really good at our craft, but we still go out there and we play it with a real f*cking rock attitude.”
