My favorite quote from this interview: I’d say that Hare Krishna has more energy attached to it in terms of thousands of years of being uttered than “Pour Some Sugar on Me.” Awesome! Although I do love, "Pour Some Sugar on Me." :)

Man, do my wife & I love Krishna Das. I'm experiencing a time in my life where my interest in material things is waning fast. I really can't get excited about that big promotion. Getting rich seems boring. And it would be easy to slip into apathy and depression but for his chants that feel like oak trees and move like big ideas. Would it be melodramatic to claim that they're saving my life? Probably not.

This is great about drumming as a type of music therapy. I checked out that link to Raven Drum. Congrat's to Rick Allen. The early 80s soundtrack to our lives wouldn't have been the same without Def Leppard. I've been wanting to learn the drums for a while--actually just snare drums. I'd considered congas.

Rick Allen is incredibly inspirational...but what weird linkage this story has....

I was not a Def Leppard fan in the 80's; however, I am a big fan of their now and wish I had always been. After what all this band has been through, they tuffed it out and are still together over 20 years later! I give them much, much credit. They have a lot of "innerstrength".

I have been a HUGE fan of Def Leppard since their second album. When I'd heard about the accident I thought "there goes another great band" but they stuck together, worked out how to keep going and then did it. I saw them 2x's in concert after that and thought this was the best concert(s) i'd seen...ever. I'm so glad Rick found what gives him peace and was still happy to stay with the band.
