Hi there - I came accross this pic of Rick Allen playing a live show with Tesla on the Monsters of Rock Cruise and it appears to be Paiste Rude cymbals that he's playing. I understand that it is a guest slot and that he may have simply been playing on borrowed gear, I was just wondering whether he may have switched from Zildjian to Paiste. Not that it matters, just interested. I know he used to play Paiste Rudes in the old days.
