Def Leppard's Vivian Campbell Says His Cancer Is Gone Again

Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell says that his Hodgkin's Lymphoma is now in remission for a second time. Campbell hit Facebook to dish the good news.

"For those of you that give a toss, here's the latest and greatest on my cancer situation. I'm currently in Boston and I did a scan on Tuesday morning," he began.

"The scan shows that the cancer is in remission. Great news, but I'm trying not to get too excited about it as I heard that same phrase late last year only to be disappointed again a few months after when it returned. The plan is to do a stem cell transplant as soon as the tour is finished. However, to keep me in remission my doctors have recommended that I do another, 3rd, round of the chemo (I.C.E.), so I'm back in hospital, all hooked up and doing my rock n' roll drugs. Keef would be most proud!"

Campbell's cancer went into remission for the first time in early 2013.
