Blimp Time Hop: Def Leppard's Thunder God Is 56 Today
When most teeenagers were starting their first jobs at fast food joints, Rick got a dream gig that would turn out to be a lifelong career in a band that very deservingly ended up in The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. He has been in Def Leppard since 1978 when he joined the band on his 15th birthday.
