Def Leppard drummer can beat the drums, beat his wife and paint with the same hand

I have to admit that this kinda surprised me. It's as Rick Allen double flipped me off. Almost.

Def Leppard's drummer Rick Allen is not only a one hand-drummer, a one-hand wife beater, but he also paints with one hand. Or does he?

He is putting on an art show showcasing his art debut collection, "Electric Hand: Rhythm + Change", at America's premiere art gallery, Martin Lawrence Galleries at the Forum Shops in Las Vegas. From March 22 until April 10. His entire collection of rhythm on canvas will be on display, and fans are encouraged to visit the gallery while they are there to see it and own the final pieces available in the world.

This is a free event, but fans are asked to RSVP with RickAllenArt.com so that they can notify the gallery of their anticipated attendance.

Rick is translating rhythm into a visual art medium through an extensive process involving drumbeat, light, photography, and graphic design. The result is a collection of abstract imagery built directly from Allen's rhythmic prowess.
