Profile Bio Text
Richard John Cyril "Rick" Allen (born November 1, 1963, Dronfield, Derbyshire, England) is the drummer for the British hard rock band Def Leppard, who took the role as drummer from Frank Noon in 1978. He is famous for overcoming the complete amputation of his left arm to continue playing with the band, which subsequently went on to its greatest popular success worldwide. Allen started out drumming with his mother`s kitchen utensils when he was five, using a tambourine as additional percussion. At about the age of 10 he successfully persuaded his parents to get him a drumkit, by agreeing to take lessons, and pay half the cost of the kit. He got a red sparkle Del-Ray drum kit and after six months of lessons, he began playing with his first band, Smokey Blue. Later on he played with bands called Rampant and the Johnny Kalendar Band. When Allen was 15, his father replied on his behalf (Allen himself didn`t want to reply, as he was ready to give up the drums) to an ad placed by a band called Def Leppard looking for a drummer to replace Frank Noon ("Leppard loses skins" was the ad`s headline), and on November 28, 1978, Allen joined the band. In 1979 he dropped out of school (other band members quit their jobs around the same time) to concentrate on a career in music. In September of that year, they opened for Sammy Hagar at London`s Hammersmith Odeon and in October and November played shows as a support act for AC/DC; Allen celebrated his 16th birthday with a performance at the Hammersmith Odeon. On March 14, 1980, the band released their first album, On Through the Night. This was followed the next year by High `n` Dry and in 1983 by Pyromania, the album that made them superstars. Rick was married on October 10, 2003, to Lauren Monroe, co-founder of Raven Drum Foundation a charity set up by Rick located in Malibu, California, to encourage disabled children to overcome their challenges. Rick has a daughter, Lauren Shane Allen (born May 20, 1997), by a previous marriage. Allen is a vegetarian.
