Rick Allen - The one-armed drummer for band Def Leppard, who keeps on drumming and making a living of it...and is not a joke at all!
He is an strong example and inspiration followed by many people, fans & drummers. They call him "Thunder God" by his inner strength and will to recover from the car accident that caused his arm amputation long time ago...

Raven Drum Circle with Rick Allen & Lauren Monroe (wife):


Enjoy it...

Re: Rick Allen
My deepest respect to the band. In a situation where "most" bands would have found another drummer .... Def Leppard put everything on hold, until Rick was able to rehab. and rejoin the band. Rick showed an "amazing" amount of fortitude, to overcome his challenge. Def Leppard showed an "amazing" amount of loyalty, in sticking by his side, and never moving on without him.

Re: Rick Allen
You are absolutely right Harry!
Other band would have dumped and replaced the lowly drummer immediately...Both Rick & Def Leppard have showed commitment, comradeship, loyalty and patience in a long term to overcome life bad experiences.
