yeah. I DO remember Rick Allen. I just saw him play a sold out arena about a month or so ago. This guy deserves MAJOR respect! Not only did he not quit playing, he re-learned an entirely new way to perform his craft! And he blows away most drummers out there. Major props to him for sticking with it, & major props to his band for not dumping him! They all have my respect.. And they EARNED IT!
