To be honest, I quit listening to Leppard after "X" - that album was horrendous.

Any contribution Campbell may have made is crap in my opinion. The Def Leppard guitar sound is Phil's sound. Phil isn't going to let Campbell change that and considering the songs Vivian wrote, I don't blame Phil. If Vivian was a better song writer, maybe he would be a bigger influence in Leppard, it's hard to tell. Phil may have an ego but it's easier to keep Vivian in the background if Vivian's songwriting sucks.

David Coverdale said the same thing about Campbell. One of the reasons he was fired from Whitesnake was because he couldn't write a decent song. He gave Coverdale some ideas and Coverdale said they were pretty much a joke.

That's why I don't believe Campbell had much input in the Dio songs aside from the solos. Vivian tries to claim credit for those early songs but considering what he's done since, I don't believe him.
