Sock Monkey Sound - Rick Allen Interview Quotes

"There's a lot of talk about Def Leppard at the moment with the Rock Of Ages, the movie. Everybody seems to be talking about us at the moment you know which is wonderful. We've stuck around for long enough for people to really see the value you know in a band like this. We're going out on tour again. The guys all arrive in a few days and we're gonna start rehearsing for another tour. We kick off up in Utah I think on the 20th of June. That'll be with Poison and Lita Ford. So we're really excited to do that. Well actually I'm trying not to think about it too much at the moment cause you know I love being with my family and you know the kids and everything. But you know - It's time to go and rock."
