Def Leppard’s Vivian Campbell and Phil Collen briefly stopped their already sold-out stadium tour to discuss the gear they are using with Kiss. Campbell gave us the backstory on his longtime love of Les Pauls while Collen showed us his set of Jackson guitars and one Strat with great emotional value. The guitar techs Dave “Wolfie” Wolff, Roger Veage, and Scott Appleton go into great detail about the other gear.
