A lot of people have tried to pinpoint why mainstream rock ‘n’ roll doesn’t seem to have the bite it used to have. And Vivian Campbell from DEF LEPPARD has summed it up quite nicely.  He said, quote,

“Bands who come out in this day and age, a lot of ’em, what’s missing…  I mean, they have talent, they can write songs, they can sing, they can play, but they don’t have balls. And you listen to something back from the ’90s or the ’80s or ’70s, there was something earthy about it, there was an intent you had to have.”
