The Art of Rick Allen

15349603_10210695126270258_2743125175523321080_nI recently chatted with Rick Allen (famed Def Leppard drummer) about his passion for music, art, and work with veterans. Allen’s art collection is being showcased at Wentworth Galleries throughout the country. Def Leppard fans and art aficionados should check it out. There are mixed media pieces, sculptures, drums, and jewelry.
A couple of years ago I first interviewed  him. My mom died that week and the funeral was the day of his show. Two years later the very same week, he had a new exhibit. Strange how life comes full circle in different ways. 15390820_10210695123990201_3405644470247180260_n
Allen was such an inspiring person to talk to. No pretense. Interesting answers. Humble and clever. Good vibes. Here is my piece on it all on nj.com. CLICK HERE to read. Let me know what you think.
