Def Leppard Tribute Band Looking For One-Armed Drummer
California-based Pyromania are furious that a Texan band are asking musicians "without prosthetics" to audition for the role of real Def Lep drummer Rick Allen, who lost his left arm in a car crash on New Year's Eve 1984.
The angry act say: "We have nothing to do with the ad, and we're not even looking for a drummer. We feel it's in very bad taste – we have a lot of respect for Rick and Def Leppard, and we love and honour their music. Please do not confuse us with the people demonstrating this disgusting and disrespectful behaviour."
