Remember “Dead Man’s Curve” by Jan & Dean? The opening lyrics were:
….I was cruisin’ in my Sting Ray late one night
When an XKE pulled up on the right
And rolled down the window of his shiny new Jag
And challenged me then and there to a drag…..
It was on New Years Eve, 1984, that Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen, crashed his Corvette Stingray, on the A57 outside Sheffield, UK. Allen lost his left arm in the accident. Allen was on his way to a New Year’s Eve party at his family’s home when a Jaguar passed him. The driver had been egging Allen on and would not allow him to pass. In his rage to pass this driver, he did not see a turn up ahead and lost control of his car. He was thrown from the car, with his left arm severed due to the seatbelt not being properly fastened.
Remember, New Years Eve is amateur night. Please be careful if you are going out tonight. We like of friends, and want to keep all of you.
