Def Leppard's Rick Allen Almost Lost Both Arms


Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen is known for killing it on the drums minus his left arm, but he could have lost his right arm too.

In a recent interview, Allen opened up about the 1984 car accident that took his left arm and almost took the right.

"Not too many people know this, but I broke my right arm really badly, and during the healing process, the hospital, they said, 'There's a chance that you may lose your right arm as well,'" Allen revealed.

After losing his left arm, Allen had to relearn how to play the drums and even had a custom drum kit made.
