Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen will appear on Planet Rock radio tomorrow night.

Rick was the guest on the 15th February episode of the drumming show 'Sticks, Drums & Rock n Roll'.

Tomorrow night the final episode of the show presented by DJ and comedian Al Murray will feature highlights of his interview. The show is on from 7pm to 8pm.

Rick talks about his drumming technique and influences. A preview clip was aired during an ad break in Joe Elliott's show earlier tonight.

In the clip Rick appears to be talking about a story first mentioned in Animal Instinct when Tommy Aldridge helped him on the 1980 tour.
