Asked if the rest of DEF LEPPARD or anyone else close to Steve has seen the painting and weighed in on it, Rick said: “I actually took a snapshot of Steve‘s piece and sent it to my mother. She still keeps in touch with Steve‘s family and took the picture up there to show it to his mom and dad. She said his mom had tears rolling down her cheeks. It wasn’t that I wanted to make her sad or anything, it was more me paying homage to her son, one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever known.”
Clark, who co-founded DEF LEPPARD and played with the band for almost 13 years, died in January 1991 from an overdose of alcohol and prescription drugs at his home in London, England.
Rick Allen will showcase his “Art To Wear” jewelry and “Drums For Peace” art collection at two special Wentworth Gallery events this weekend: Saturday January 13 in Short Hills, New Jersey and Sunday January 14 in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
