Def Leppard tribute band Pyromania have placed an advert looking for a one-armed drummer.

According to a picture posted on, the Texas band are looking to replicate the exact look of the British metallers and have placed an advert that begins with the words: "Seeking one-armed drummer (No prosthetics)!"
