This is an aside, from six years before "Carrie Anne"... Oh my, they look so clean cut. And I can't actually understand a word they're singing, except Louie Louie. I missed those days.

Leppard Drummer

(Rick Allen)

Rick Allen  (1 November 1963) and started playing drums at the age of nine. When Allen was 14, his mother saw an advert by a band called "Def Leppard" who needed drummer to replace Tony Kenning ("Leppard loses skins"). He got the job on 1 November 1978, which was his 15th birthday.

In 1984, Allen was involved in a car accident when passing another car and he lost control of his Corvette. He was thrown from the car, causing his left arm to be severed. Doctors initially reattached Allen's arm, but because of an infection, it had to be re-amputated. His right shoulder was also severely broken in the accident.

But Rick Allen continues to play with the band utilising a custom-made drum set.
