Vivian Campbell: diagnosed with cancer, but still touring

Vivian Campbell
Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has been diagnosed with cancer. Nevertheless, he still plans to tour with the band this summer, even though he will be receiving treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma.

"If you're going to have a cancer, Hodgie's is the one to have," the 50-year-old guitarist joked in a statement. "[It] has an over-80% cure rate." Campbell is already one-third of the way through a six-month chemotherapy scheme and said he is "feeling rather spiffy, all things considered".

Cross-Picked and Hybrid-Picked Arpeggios 
Kiko Loureiro was first profiled in GP back in the 11/07 issue, where we described him as a player with uncommon facility not just in rock and shred, which he was known for at the time, but also jazz, fusion, and traditional Brazilian and Bossa Nova music. At this year’s NAMM show, Loureiro sat for a private lesson and discussed some of his monster techniques, including the clever application of arpeggios in his tunes.

Rob Chappers: Orange OR100 - Twin Channel Valve Head and the Vox TB35 Tube Amp


I love this amp, I genuinely think it's one of Orange's best to date. The retro "Pics Only" styling blended with the updated valve technology and switchable practicality it's the OR100 in a league of it's own.  If you need soaring gain sounds and buttery cleans then this is one to check out.


Chappers Demo's The Orange OR100 - Twin Channel Valve Head

Chappers & the Captain go all QVC on you with this cracking offer on the Vox TB35 all valve combos. There are 2 versions of the TB35 - the C1 is a 35w 1x12, and the C2 is a 35w 2x12 combo. Whilst the origins of the amp are from the AC30, the TB35 is far more American sounding, with a sparkly clean channel & vintage sounding, grumbly, dirty channel. At 35w both these amps are capable gigging machines!

At half the original UK price these amps represent about the best value all tube amps avaialable right now. So if vintage American tones are your thang, & you want to bag a bargain, follow one of these links....

New Art Exhibit and John Lennon Artist Guitar Amplifier Evening at Gallery 319

On Saturday June 15, Gallery 319 will debut new artwork alongside the new John Lennon Artist Series of guitar amplifiers by Fargen Amplifiers. This will be the first public display of the $4999 amplifier and the amp will be available in limited quantities for purchase. Come view, play and drink. Bring your guitars, listen to music and view the amazing artwork alongside surprise guests. There will even be a Lennon jam session with all of the guest musicians so feel free to sing or play along.

The John Lennon Artist Series amplifier was just featured on the April cover of Guitar Player magazine, the biggest magazine of its kind in the world. That issue was dedicated to the “Must Have Guitar Gear for 2013”. Along with the Artist Series, Fargen will display the JL-15 production amplifier and offer a sneak peak at the new line of John Lennon effects pedals.

Fargen Amplification is proud to announce the first ever line of John Lennon guitar amplifiers. The line pays tribute to one of the greatest artists of our time, and combines John Lennon’s signature tones with his world-renowned artwork – providing a unique experience for musicians and fans alike.

Gallery 319 is a fun art gallery specializing in rock & roll and sports arts. Owner Michelle Rosen has been in the art business for over 20 years. 

We cordially invite you to join us June 15 from 6:00PM to 9:00PM to enjoy an evening of wonderful entertainment. In addition to the unveiling of the John Lennon amplifiers, there will be new art on display from other fellow rock stars from John’s history.
