Rick Allen QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
America feels like home as much as it does here. Although it's a strange situation as I feel almost like I'm in no-man's land some of the time, because although I'm a resident, I still can't vote so I don't really have a say in what goes on where I live.
Quotation of Rick Allen

And really, it's my home life that my own personal foundation is based on and not necessarily the life within the band.

Quotation of Rick Allen
Before my accident I was a little too... selfish and self-absorbed and for me, to now be at the place where I can kinda give back and inspire people. I'm blessed. I'm really blessed.

But unfortunately, in my unrelenting drive to get back on that drum stool, the major casualty in all of it was that I really forgot about me.
Quotation of Rick Allen
'Cause I felt I didn't have anything else to prove as a musician... and boy was I wrong about that one.
Quotation of Rick Allen
Chasing the sensation. Whether it was drugs or sex or whatever. Those things had become my main focus in life.

I feel so incredibly vulnerable and exposed when I have to talk into a microphone and bare my soul so to speak.
Quotation of Rick Allen
I have never been one for the over-the-top.
Quotation of Rick Allen
I prefer the rather old and battered, things with character, to the brand new.
Quotation of Rick Allen
I really don't feel any strong allegiance to any country.
Quotation of Rick Allen
I think all of those things, but certainly the booze really brought out the really unreasonable side of me, and I just didn't want to revisit that place again.
Quotation of Rick Allen
I think at that time I obviously wasn't aware of what I really needed. But conversely, my wanting to prove something to everyone was beneficial 'cause if I hadn't done it then, maybe I'd never have done it.
Quotation of Rick Allen
I think it was a wake up call for everybody. Yeah, they could see that I had a weakness and a tendency to overindulge.

I think my perception of my own life is different and the fact that Lauren and myself are together. I've never felt this free or happy and so that permeates onto my onstage persona and to my working environment.

Quotation of Rick Allen
If we had loads of money as a family, things would be different and they'd come to visit more and I'd get to spend more time here. But I'm laying down roots in America so when I'm there, just being at home, it's harder to break away from that.
Quotation of Rick Allen

Quotation of Rick Allen
Just the same way I'd say a prayer before going onstage, taking that even further and using the drum to inspire people. And using that as a vehicle for the intention.

Sometimes it's a negative because I still have a memory of some of the things I could do... when I still had two arms.
Quotation of Rick Allen
The only slightly disappointing thing about the whole tour - and I've said this to many people - is that if we'd've had a hit single we'd be dangerous.
