Hey ROCK family, it’s Jackson! Rick Allen of Def Leppard is my special guest today! We sat in a small studio, shared a mic and had one hell of a conversation! Short list of topics:
*Why he started painting
*Using his creative passion in multiple ways
*Handling his PTSD
*He gets inspiration for his artwork while on tour
*He slept on gear in the early days
*If it hadn’t been Def Leppard, which band(s) would he have liked to drum for?
*The support of Def Leppard’s parents in the early days
*I got super nervous when he asked me what actor would play him in a movie about his life
*What childish thing does he still enjoy

He’ll be doing an appearance at Wentworth Gallery in Phipps Plaza this Saturday, May 4th from 5-8 PM.
