** When first auditioning for the band, Rick plays in the style of several drummers, then falls off his drumstool. He's just imitating the drunken antics of [[TheWho Keith Moon]].

Originally formed in 1977 in Sheffield, England by five teenagers who really liked glam rock, '''Def Leppard''' became grouped with the NWOBHM before turning early-MTV pop-rock sweethearts. After kicking out a founding guitarist for too much drunken tomfoolery (Pete Willis), they released a well-received rock album (''Pyromania''), lost another sixth of a member (Rick Allen's left arm), released a phenomenally successful pop-rock record (''Hysteria''), which was essentially aiming to be "the hard rock version of ''[[Music/MichaelJackson Thriller]]''", then the ''other'' original guitarist drank himself to death over the course of a few years (Steve Clark).
