Def Leppard’s Rick Allen Finished His Hand-Made Tribute To Eddie Van Halen And It Looks Outstanding

Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen paid his tribute to late guitarist Eddie Van Halen by sharing a new post on his official Instagram account.

As you might already know, Eddie had been struggling with lots of health problems in his life, and he was recently fighting against throat cancer before his death. Unfortunately, he passed away due to a stroke at the age of 65 in October 2020.

Back in February 2021, Rick Allen revealed that he has started to portray the legendary guitarist and showed the first part of his work. After two months, Rick finally finished it.

In the picture, you can see that Rick perfectly drew Eddie as he was playing his guitar and smiling at the same time, and it made everybody emotional to see such work from him.
