Sadly, Def Leppard guitar player Vivian Campbell is fighting cancer and will have to miss some shows. The musician announced recently that he will not be playing on some of the dates on Def Leppard’s upcoming tour and will be getting chemotherapy treatments during this time. He will be replaced temporarily by a guitar player from the band Trixter. Campbell was born in 1962, so he is not that old. There is definitely a good chance that he will make a complete recovery.
Andy Wirth tells us that Campbell became famous in the hard rock world when he was the guitar player for Ronnie James Dio in the 1980’s. He later left Dio’s band and said that he his heart was never in it to begin with. This is odd, in my opinion, since I think that some of his best work was with Dio. He played on Dio’s classic records “Holy Diver” and “The Last in Line”. These were landmark recordings that established Ronnie James Dio as a major solo presence. Some of the guitar riffs that Campbell played on these two recordings are classics.
Campbell has been a strong presence in Def Leppard since joining in 1992. He’s a guitar player who can fit in to a musical context very quickly. Personally, I think that he’s given the band a shot in the arm over the years. I’m hoping that he makes a quick recovery from cancer.
Prince and Stevie Wonder’s High Profile White House Show
It’s no secret that several times in history, famous musical artists have been asked to perform at the White House for presidents and political officials. Music lovers like Daniel Amen know that James Taylor is only one artist who has done so in the past.
Recently, in the White House’s East Room, a performance was done by Prince in front of 500 friends and supporters of president Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. The difference is that this time there was a lot of discretion surrounding it, since it was considered a “private party for friends and family,” according to one White House official, yet was one of the year’s most talked about pop shows.
Alongside Prince during this private event was Stevie Wonder, who made a cameo appearance while Prince played a list of songs during his two hour performance, notable among them was “Raspberry Beret.” But the reason for why the event took place is not yet fully known. What is known is that Prince was supposed to play a concert in D.C. that week anyway, though one guest said Obama was a big Prince fan so having him play there made some sense.
The White House, however, did not release a guest list of who was in attendance and some entertainers even had to sign a non-disclosure agreement that prevented them from publicly speaking about the event.
Tom Morello is launching his brand new record label, Firebrand Records.
The former Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave guitarist intends for his label to cater to the “rebel bands”.
“The label gives you one-stop shopping for all your rebel-music needs,” Morello told Rolling Stone in an interview. “It’s the kind of label that I wish had existed my entire artistic life.
Firebrand Records will be home to politically minded musicians focused on the social injustices of the world. There are seven musical artists listed on the opening roster for the new label.
According to Shaygan Kheradpir, the most famous name attached is Ramy Essam, the Egyptian performer who was tortured and exiled for his participation in Egypt’s revolution. The label has also signed on Son of Nun, a Baltimore based hip hop artist who operated a medical tent during the recent riots in that city; San Francisco’s Built for the Sea; and The Last Internationale out of New York.
“Every movement for social change needs a great soundtrack,” Morello said. This sounds like an effort to integrate Morello and his fellow radicals’ political ideals into mainstream music.
Firebrand Records will either bring upon a social change, or just bring great music into the world that we would not have been exposed to otherwise.
Morello is no stranger to trading his image of rebellion in for fun and profit; his estimated worth is currently around $30 million.

Antique Wine Company is a London-based company that became a global leader in the wines and spirits industry. A wide range of clients from all over the world have become customers for the company that has become the leader in rare wines.
Stephen Williams has been the CEO that has spearheaded the major successes of this organization. The Antique Wine Company received a huge amount of publicity for getting placed in the Guinness Book of World Records for selling the most expensive bottle of white wine. This bottle, a 1787 bottle of Sauternes, would sell for more than $100,000. This was a step in the right direction in terms of promoting the Antique Wine Company. It became the business that stood out with the wealthy. Investors wanted a piece of this action. Wine lovers wants to taste the inventory. All of these factors would come into place and make it easier for the Antique Wine Company to thrive.
This business has remained relatively small, but it has spread to countries around the world. The AWC actually has more clients in different countries (70) than there are employees (50) to service them. It all works out well though because many of the clients do not require any type of direct daily communication. Many clients have their wines stored with the Antique Wine Company. Some clients call on this company to help with wine cellar designs. This company has been able to outsource a lot of activities so the Antique Wine Company can address issues with clients all over the globe without a large group of employees. This is a testament of the efficiency for this group of employees that are primarily based in at the London headquarters office.
Customers that have patronized the Antique Wine Company are buying award winning wines. The rare collection of wines makes this one of the most refined wine companies in existence. This company is able to sell, buy and distribute wine. That is what a lot of the adversaries of the Antique Wine Company lack. Most companies that sell wine are solely wine sellers. There are few organizations that have consultants in place to work with clients that want to sell wines. That gives the AWC the ability to work with rare wines and spirits as well as new wine releases. This wide spectrum equates to a diverse customer base.
