Rick Allen is a famous Drummer, who was born on November 1, 1963 in United Kingdom.

Drummer for the rock band Def Leppard, distinctive for his musical ability despite having lost his left arm early in his career. He is referred to as “The Thunder God” by fans.

On the afternoon of 31 December 1984, Allen was involved in a car accident, with his then-girlfriend Miriam Barendsen, on the A57 road in the countryside a few miles west of Sheffield. While trying to pass another car at a high speed, he lost control of his Corvette C4, which hit a dry stone wall and entered a field. He was thrown from the car because his safety belt had been improperly fastened, causing his left arm to be severed. His girlfriend suffered head, neck and spine injuries from severe whiplash. 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. Despite losing his arm, Allen soon decided to continue playing drums with Def Leppard, and adopted a specially-designed electronic drum kit. The band took a hiatus from onstage performances until 1986, when Allen was able to return to live drumming. He has since re-adopted partially-acoustic drum kits depending on the setting.
