The secret to Big Love’s big sound? Drums! (And bagpipes 😀)
Was great recording with these fantastic drummers! 🙂
Here’s my good friend… Jeff Elwood (a.k.a. The Wheelchair Drummer). He’s an inspiration to us all!

Frank Hannon Music’s The Far Out Podcast!
Check out Frank Hannon Music’s The Far Out Podcast! It was great to be interviewed by Frank for his latest podcast (Episode 18) during the last Monsters of Rock Cruise. Frank interviewed me, Christian from Wentworth Gallery, and also his fellow Tesla the Band member Brian Wheat! Give it a listen! 🙂

Steve Devanney – Emergency Motorcycle Accident Fund
Hi everyone this is my dear friend Steve… he was in a tragic motorcycle accident. I’m contributing to Him & his speedy recovery… even if you donate a dollar, I know he’ll be ok. The road ahead is long for him I know… Please help …….🙏🏼❤️🌈
EP out July 10th.
“Big Love” is about the potential in all of us. We all differ by gender, by sexual orientation, the color of our skin, and by our individual ideology, ethnicity and spiritual guidance. We are, however, a singular humanity. We truly are: BIG LOVE.
Directed by Shaun Monson, “Big Love” is a song I felt I had to write and record. It’s my anthem and I trust it. The album breaks on July 10th 2020 and is available for pre-order today. It represents my heart and my soul, and defines this moment in time. Hopeful. Strong. Healing.
Q&A Session With Fans
My crew/assistant that helps run my VIP ACCESS group will be broadcasting live over there today at 1pm PT (4pm ET) – doing a little Q&A session that fans have asked him about me and the band. He tells me that he’s answering these ones today:
1. His favorite soundcheck (and he’s been to a lot of them!)
2. When he’s seen me mad? (I’m a little worried about this one – I guess we’ll see what he says!)
3. How he started working with me. (I love to embarrass him with that story!)
All of my VIP ACCESS members can watch it live or watch the saved version later. If you aren’t a member yet, you can join up here: https://rickallen.com/product/vip-access-with-rick/ Once you’ve joined, you can request access to the private VIP ACCESS Facebook Group! As always, a portion of all membership proceeds go to support Raven Drum and people in crisis. It’s just a little something I do to reward my biggest supporters. Thank you all!
