Def Leppard Drummer Rick Allen Visits Old Drum Kit At Hard Rock Display
Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen is called up to comment on one of his old drum kits which is on display at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. He explains that it 'brings back many memories' and he's 'happy it saw the light of day again' before saying that he's glad to be at the Hard Rock.
Rick Allen famously lost his left arm when he was 17 in a street racing accident in 1984. After initially feeling depressed about the accident and the effect it would have on his career, he soon had specialist drum kits designed and he and the band are still going strong today.
