I’ve always loved Def Leppard and was beyond happy that they were (finally!) inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019. I couldn’t be there, but this acceptance speech is one of the best I’ve ever heard:

The look on Rick Allen’s face when the crowd gives him a standing ovation is stunning. From some of the comments I read in the video, he is a very down-to-earth guy who could just walk around like the rock god that he is, but instead he’s humble and incredibly appreciative of all that he has. I wish we could all be such wonderful people.

Also, very nice to see Brian May, who is absolutely amazing:

Def Leppard is what happens when you take your kid’s dreams seriously.
