Thanks, I have seen that one before, I was really looking for one of him playing.

No problem,I'm sure that those pics are rarer than hen's teeth and if they do exist may only be in family albums.

This has been my favorite picture of Bonham for a very long time.  When I look at this picture I can just feel the groove.  It's in his expression and his body language.  I can hear all the small embellishments and nuances that made him the greatest drummer of all time.

Also compare it to this photo from the same show.  The uncompromisingly precise power he played with is immediately identifiable, just as his feel is.  He was an incredible, nearly incomparable talent.  Very few musicians legitimately change the world of music, and even fewer do it without being a songwriter.  Bonham did it from behind the kit in a band comprised of three immense talents, and because of that he is in a very elite group of musicians.

This is a GREAT photo. Totally with you on the palpable feeling in this shot. Who knows what tune he's playing but Since I've Been Loving You feels right.

Looks like 1980 Tour of Europe.

Ringo and Bonzo (Sounds like a movie from the 50s!)
