    Back in November, Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell revealed back that his Hodgkin's lymphoma, which he had been battling since June, was in remission.

    He has now confirmed that the disease is back.

    Because he will receive treatment, the guitarist will have to miss the band's songwriting session this month.

    He has not altered his plans to be a part of the group's summer tour with Kiss and expects to be writing music with the group for their November songwriting session. That's good news. But take it easy, Viv! Don't push too hard.

    He said he is not too concerned about the cancer and he is stayin' posi!

    We send our VERY best to Viv Campbell that he gets through this medical rough patch!

    Will you see Def Leppard with Kiss this summer?
