While out on their current tour, Def Leppard's own Vivian Campbell spoke with Gibson about the tour life, his favorite Les Pauls, new music and more! Here's one question in the interview:


Gibson: Let’s talk guitars. What’s in your Def Leppard rig?
Vivian Campbell: I have a few of my trusty Les Pauls I always use for recording and touring. My main Les Paul for both touring and recording is a 1978 Les Paul custom. I bought it in a pawn shop in Nashville in 1992, and it got damaged in transit flying to Europe. The only part of the guitar that was salvaged was the neck, but that was the most important part of the guitar, because I like the feel of the neck. So, I had it re-bodied with a standard Les Paul body, not a custom, and it’s basically a mutt guitar! That’s my main stage guitar and my main one in the studio, too. My second go-to Les Paul is my ‘56 Goldtop reissue.

Listen to a sample of their first single “Bang the Lid” HERE


Collen initially started DELTA DEEP in 2012 after jamming at home over the course of a year with friend and relative, Debbi Blackwell-Cook (Blackwell-Cook is the Godmother of Collen’s wife, Helen). What started as a casual pairing singing Motown and classic blues staples while Debbi frequently visited Collen’s home quickly turned into much more.  Collen, Helen, and Debbi began writing original music which Collen and Debbi recorded in Collen’s home studio.  Later that year, a chance meeting re-acquainted Collen with Memphis native  and enigmatic heavy metal, jazz, & r-n-b drummer Forrest Robinson. A friend suggested giving STP bassist Robert DeLeo a call.  Sharing a...
