The incredible one-armed drummer we call the ‘Thunder God’, Rick Allen turns 53 today. He was born on November 1, 1963 in Dronfield, Derbyshire, England and has been in Def Leppard since 1978, joining the band on his 15th birthday.

Join us tonight at 6:20 for live Def Leppard on the WBLM Mini-Concert!

Gotta throw this in there too! Me and Def Lep backstage at the Civic Center in Portland back in '87 for the Hysteria tour!

Watch the official vid for Dangerous from their self-titled latest album released one year ago this week. This album picks right where Hysteria left off!
