Does this mean the Rock cred that Vivian Campbell said Def Leppard was slowly regaining will now go down again??

yeah, but you gota loves 'Easy' by old Lionel. classic song that.
Looking at the credits for all the songs on the back of 'X' is unsettling, with the amount of different names down there for writing credits..

It pisses me off that radio is playing the Lionel Richie version and wasn't playing the Lep version a couple of years back.
