"Along with the bands success, they have also been hit with some blows, the first was having to fire their longtime friend and guitar player, Pete Willis, during the recording of Pyromania, due to his alcohol abuse. Two years later, drummer Rick Allen, would lose his arm in a terrible car accident. (Can I just say, hats off to the band who put the band on hold and waited until Rick was ready to rejoin the band with an adapted drum kit? Not many bands would do that. It just goes to show how close of a brotherhood these blokes have for one another. In 1999, guitarist Steve Clark, died of a drug overdose. Most recently, in 2013, Steve’s replacement, Vivian Campbell, was diagnosed with cancer, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and twice he thought it had gone into remission but twice it’s come back, the latest news coming only a month prior to this show. Through it all the band has pushed on, and today still sell out arenas around the world."
