NEW YORK (AP) — Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell says he is being treated for cancer.
In a statement Monday, the 50-year-old says he has Hodgkin lymphoma and has been in chemotherapy for two months, with four months of treatment remaining.
Says Campbell: "I feel fortunate that my cancer sent me an alarm call in the form of 'the cough that wouldn't quit.'"
