For all of those people ever wondering why there was no statement from Vivian Campbell on Ronnie James Dio's death, it was because they fucking hated each other. Pure and simple. Now we all seem to think we know Ronnie as a person based on concerts and interviews but we really don't. You want to see the dark side of Ronnie? Apparently all you had to do was bring up Vivian's name in public. Check it out.
After reading this interview with Vivian Campbell recently,I'd have to agree with Ronnie. Vivian you've been a nothing since you had your falling out with Dio so many years ago. You join high profile bands that have already established their music i.e. Whitesnake,Def Leppard, and now apparently Thin Lizzy. Yet you have the audacity to go in and talk shit like you're some guitar god that needs to be challenged and correcting people on how Thin Lizzy songs should be played. You want to be challenged? Then go back to Riverdogs and try to make that a real band. Stop swinging off other peoples nuts so much and then being a prick about it. Condolences on your parents though. Asshole.
