• Rick Allen is the famous drummer for Def Leppard
  • He was recently attacked in public
  • Here are the details of the cowardly attack

Talk about beating on an older man. According to reports, the 59-year old drummer was attacked by a 19-year old assailant while he was smoking a cigarette. Allen was knocked to the ground by the attacker and hit his head on the pavement.

Rick Allen won't even be fazed by this!

And here is what makes the story even more tragic. Rick has an important handicap. Allen, who sadly lost his arm in a car accident back in 1984, provided a sworn statement to police.
