JOHN BONHAM – A Tribute

John Bonham

A little side-step on this just before I launch into The Recommender – Number 4. I simply want to say a happy belated birthday to the late JOHN BONHAM. He would have been 60 years old last Saturday!

The greatest drummer ever to have lived in mine and most other people’s opinion. Anybody with any sense, anybody with any taste, anybody that’s ever been moved by a beat, and quite frankly anybody with a pair of ears should know and love this mans talent for ‘the sticks’. Unique and totally in a class of his own.

Whilst playing for Led Zeppelin until his untimely death in September 1980, aged just 32, he stole shows and dominated the stage. Well known for occassionally going on 15-20 minute drum solos mid-gig, the man had boundless energy to match his massive talent.

Sorely missed, his legacy will no doubt inspire many drummers for generations to come…

HAPPY 60th BIRTHDAY JOHN

As a small tribute I attach the 2nd half of his famous Moby Dick drum solo. Not until 6mins 21secs into this video does Jimmy Page and co actually return to the stage to crack on with the rest of the tune. Brilliant!
