    Saw Def Leppard in Birmingham in’88 on Hysteria tour.Blown away by Steve’s musical ability,amazing guitarist.Steve was the main songwriter of the band and the driving musical force.After Steve’s passing Leppard soon turned to shit and lost their way.I wouldn’t cross the road to see them now without Steve!

    As Jim Royle would say, ” Vivian Campbell, my arse!!!”

  16. Angel Lee Says:

    Steve, You are loved and greatly missed. The band and the music just isn’t the same without you. Rest with the angels.

  17. Suze Says:

    I grew up listening to the riffs of Steve. He was the first guitarist I ever had a crush on. I was totally crushed when I found out he died. He was an amazing guitarist. I know we all miss him every much. But, I just have to say this: Def Leppard hasn’t been on the same great level of music for 20 years. I’m sure he had dark shadows that followed him that none of us would understand, so I can see a reason behind his drinking. But, I’m saddened that no one spoke up to “shove” into his head the dangers with mixing booze & pills. I just don’t think that was a widely known fact back then. I miss you so much Steve & am still devastated I never got to see you in all of your glory on stage blasting out the most awesome riffs anyone’s ever heard. RIP Steamin’. <3

  18. VICKIEJ Says:

    I still listen to DEF LEPPARD but now it is with sadness because u are no longer there I will always miss u ALWAYS!!!!!!!!!

  19. Omar Valenzuela Says:

    steve me inspiraste a ser guitarrista poos tocan con el alma como tu

  20. Sandy Says:

    I was 14 when you passed Steve. You were my first love. 21 years later I still love you. I have some unpopular opinions and anger towards innocent people. I dont like Vivian because he isnt you, thats not his fautl. And I wonder if Janie had stayed up and not left you on the couch if there was any chance you might have been saved. I know its wrong, I never knew you but you and Def Leppard brought such joy to me. The old music still does. Rest in peace love, you deserve it.
