Good news! Def Leppard/Dio guitarist Vivian Campbell's lymphoma is in remission. reports that Vivian was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma earlier this year, but in a Facebook post from the guitarist on his official page, Vivian Campbell announced that the recovery process has begun.

He had this to say, proving he keeps a great sense of humor:

"For anyone who gives a toss, after doing another PET scan and all the other follow up tests, then getting a second opinion etc., I’m officially in remission from Hodgies. That’s the good news. The bad news is: I no longer have an excuse to not go to the gym."

All the best wishes on Vivian's recovery!

Wish him well yourself on his facebook page!
