Personal information

Born on: 30.09.1972


John Steven Campbell (born September 30, 1972) is the bassist and a founding member of the metal band Lamb of God. He also plays with Richmond, VA rock band, RPG.

Although his influences are quite eclectic, ranging from Willie Nelson to Kool Keith to Bad Brains, John is not known as a particularly flashy bass player, usually holding his own while playing the technical riffs of Lamb of God. His right hand speed and agility are defining characteristics of his playing.

Unlike many bass players who will use four and five string basses, Campbell at one time played a self modified three-stringed Guild Pilot bass, excluding the higher G-string. He also plays with a pick.

He is married. He and his wife Emily welcomed a baby boy in the summer of 2008. He is also the self-described "gamer of the band".
