GUITARIST VIVIAN CAMPBELL ANNOUNCES THAT HE IN REMISSION FROM CANCER

Viviancampbell-306 Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has announced he’s in remission from cancer.

He reported in June that he was two months into chemotherapy after having been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a form of the disease which has a high survival rate.

His condition curtailed touring plans for Last In Line, the band he formed with fellow ex-members of Dio, although Campbell has kept working throughout his treatment, including Def Leppard’s residency in Las Vegas.

Now he says: “For anyone who gives a toss: after doing another PET scan and all the other follow-up tests, then getting a second opinion etc, I’m officially in remission from Hodgies. That’s the good news. The bad news is I no longer have an excuse to not go to the gym.”

He recently admitted he was avoiding watching Def Lep’s live movie Viva! Hysteria because he didn’t want to see how ill he looked.

“JACKASS” DIRECTOR REPORTEDLY HIRED TO DIRECT MOTLEY CRUE’S “THE DIRT” MOVIE

MotleyCrue Motley Crue have hired Jackass director Jeff Tremaine to work on the movie version of their infamous autobiography The Dirt.

A big-screen version of the 2001 book is one of the three projects the band have vowed to complete before retiring. Bassist Nikki Sixx said earlier this year they’d “blow their brains out” following the movie, a final album and a farewell world tour.

Tremaine directed the cult Jackass series on MTV since its 2000 debut.

He tells Deadline, “I’ve been offered a lot of scripts but The Dirt is something I pursued with everything I had. I’ve wanted to make this going back to 2001. I put everything I had into chasing it and convincing everyone that I am the right guy for it. I really feel I am.”

No further details are currently available.

Meanwhile, Crue vocalist Vince Neil says he’d like to appear in a future series of reality show Celebrity Apprentice, but insists rumors that he’s already signed up are untrue. “I met with the producers and the network and stuff,” he explains. “That’s all I ever said, that I’m up for it.

MOTORHEAD’S LEMMY RELEASES THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT ON THE BAND’S EUROPEAN TOUR

Motorhead400 Motorhead’s Lemmy releases the following statement on the band’s cancellation of the European tour:

“I have to sadly let you know that Motörhead has had to postpone the forthcoming European tour until early next year, 2014.

We have made the decision because I am not quite ready to hit the road yet, and am working my way back to full fitness and rude health. Don’t worry – I’m not about to start promoting veganism and alcohol free beverages, but it is fair to say that I personally have been reconfiguring areas of my life to make sure I can come back fitter and stronger than ever.

It disappointed me tremendously to have to say I wasn’t quite ready to hit the road yet, but not nearly as much as it would’ve disappointed me to go out, play some average shows and watch my health give way long before the tour was over. When people come to see a Motörhead tour, they expect a Motörhead show, and that is exactly what you will get as soon as I am fit and ready to rumble.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated…and know that I’m getting stronger and stronger every day, so watch out next spring Europe and we will see you then.

Thank you all,
Lemmy”

Motorhead’s latest album, Aftershock, was released on October 22nd and landed at number three on the Hard Music chart, number eight on the on the Rock chart and at number twenty-two on on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
