Lunchtime Lesson – Why Def Leppard smells like Patchouli

Def Leppard‘s, Rick Allen, gives us a tour of his unique setup and discusses the importance of using “smell” to get in the zone. Personally, I need to smell some bacon to keep things in the pocket. I usually set up a couple of frying pans around my kit. One next to my hi hat and the other by the floor tom. I like to mic these up with 57’s and pan them (pun intended) hard left and right.
