Jason's double bass pedal

112 posts in this topic

Remember, you don't always have to play fast blastbeats with a doublekick, it can be used for finesse and creativity as much as a single kick.

His dad is unsurpassed at it. I'm sure Jason can do most of it,

With a double kicker, Jason doesn't get close to what his papa did!

Honestly, Jason's performance at the O2 wasn't exactly stellar.

Just listen to GTBT. It's not a good drumming performance.

I wouldn't say that. Do I prefer him over Bonzo? No. But he was the man who was meant for the job and he did it well.

Jason Bonham still can't play the intro to Rock n Roll properly - LOL

No one is entitled to play drums for Led Zeppelin except John Bonham!

Double kick = cheating.

For playing Zeppelin, yes I'd agree.. I saw an absolutely amazing drummer one time.. this guy could play incredible stuff, but he used the double pedal for GTBT and yes I was disappointed.

But, someone like Scott Travis has made Double Bass such an important, incredible part of their sound it stands on its own.

His drumming was fine..But, I must say his backing vocals on GTBT were annoying as hell....

agree 100% if is was to be anyone but Bonzo, it should be his son.

I'm not saying his performance at that particular gig was foul or anything, but I have to say he wasn't able to get the right drum sound.

Drum sound? I'd definitely agree. Jason's kick drum is no match for the master's.

Also...

I wasn't impressed with Jason's drumming during In My Time Of Dying. That song was pushed by John's speed/fills/power, etc., etc., and Jason didn't display any of that during that song.

The Tom work, the cowbell.. He did fine..not stellar.

The backing vocals bugged the crap out of me though.

I'm listening to it now, and I honestly think it's not an exceptional drumming performance. I'm sure Amstel will back me up on this one.

As for the backing vocals, I agree. They're way too out-of-place.

The backing vocals shouldn't of been there.

ledzepfilm.. You mis-read what I posted.

Bill Ward himself said that about Bonham's right foot...

Ohh, my mistake. I thought you meant as in Bill Ward had a better right foot than Bonham.
