Def Leppard bass guitarist.
He contracted Bells Palsy in the 1990′s and has recovered well, but some effects still linger.
He says “It was hard to come to terms with and to understand why. I found it was easy to get into the ‘why me?’ syndrome. Partly because of the disability, it was more not being able to eat properly ,or not being able to sleep without putting a patch on your eye because your eye wouldn’t close and things like that. The effect that it has on your everyday life was the hardest thing, but in comparison to Rick Allen (fellow band member who had his arm amputated), it was a very minor debilitating disease.”
He concluded “I would rather have not got the disease, but I did and you make the best of what you’ve got.”
