What is drummer Rick Allen's favorite Def Leppard song?

  • Published: 13 May 2019
  • It’s been more than 40 years since Def Leppard played their first gig. They were on top of the world, but everything changed when their drummer lost his arm in a car accident. Or did it? The incredible story of how the band stuck together and continues to rock crowds world wide as told by drummer Rick Allen when he sat down to talk with HLN's Susan Hendricks to talk about his injury… and his art.

        wow it's rare a band actually loves their fan's favorite song, a lot of bands dislike theirs for some reason.

            Absolutely the best dummer . Thank goodness he had the support to over come it and be better than ever. I saw them about four years ago in Darien Lake , NY . At the end , even though he won’t remember but I do . He reached out and shakes my hand. Only wish I could have a pic of that . Something indeed and sensational awesome show. I believe he is the most nicest one . Five stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Def Leppard 🎶🎶❤️❤️Great interview . HYSTERIA . So talented with art and of course his music

                  I completely agree on that choice.

                  Hysteria does it for me, love that 80’s soft rock melody, and it just makes me feel awesome and unstoppable as any great rock song should.

                  Underrated classic of theirs if you ask me.

                    One of the greatest metal drummers ever! Despite what he had gone through with his tradegy, he's what I call a awesome inspiration. 😘❤

                              It's not meant to be funny....think he did but was screwed up on drugs ect and as he's said many times in interviews, he lived his early life to excess and probably needed something extreme to stop him. Unfortunately we all know what but hey, he came back a stronger person and better musician. We all did stuff we regret we're human so is he.
