Rick Allen of Def Lepard supports The Wounded Warrior Project

Rick Allen of the band Def Leppard recently took some time to spend with some of our nations Wounded Warriors. Being that he himself is an amputee he could obviously relate to many of the veterans that find themselves today with challenges unheard of in their lives a few years ago.

From their FaceBook page:
"Last night Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen hosted a special behind-the-scenes tour for a group of wounded warriors. The visit also included a concert and one-on-one meetup with Rick, where they talked about life after injury, the process of defining a "new normal," and of course, rock and roll! More events will be hosted throughout the summer for warriors. Thank you, Rick, and Def Leppard!"

While Def Leppard may of had its fair share of anti-war songs in the past the fact that Rick took time to meet with these folks shows that despite possible philosophical differences on the morality or legality of war, we must all support those who dare brave its horrors in order for us to espouse these opposing views.

Now, I don't know how many of you might have been around in the early 80's but Def Leppard was THE SHITE! Talk about the 2nd British invasion, these guys had American kids all over the place running around with sleeveless t-shirts bearing the British flag on the 4th of July. Seriously, if anyone doesn't think that Pyromania was not one of the seminal albums to kick off the hair band era they need to take another listen to it.

And now for your firearm related video of the moment. Billy's Got A Gun....back when Rick still had both meat paws attached...
