Def Leppard Discuss The Loss Of Drummer Rick Allen’s Arm
When singer Joe Elliot and drummer Rick Allen of Def Leppard came to MuchMusic for an interview, VJ Michael Williams was ready. One of the most revealing exchanges had to do with the car accident that severed Rick Allen’s arm, his extraordinary recovery and return to playing with the band.
In 1984, Christopher Ward helped launch Muchmusic as Canada's first VJ. A former Second City Touring Company member and acclaimed songwriter, Ward has written for Diana Ross, Hilary Duff, The Backstreet Boys and many others. Ward received the 1990 Songwriter of the Year JUNO Award for Alannah Myles’ hit, "Black Velvet".
