The Raven Drum Foundation
Rick Allen became the drummer for Def Leppard at 15. At the height of worldwide fame in 1984, he had a car accident that changed his life. Rick lost an arm, but turned personal tragedy into spiritual transformation and continued his musical career. While he was already a hero to millions of young people, he soon added millions of new admirers. His intention with Raven Drum is to share his journey and help others to discover their own paths. Rick's incredible story is truly the direct inspiration for the Raven Drum Foundation.
