    Buddy Rich is pretty damned good

    I wonder if John Bonham had heard of seen seen Jo Jones play...There are some definite similarities...Either way I love both of these guys...Technique, soul and kick ass heart...! Jo Jones shifted the timekeeping role of the drums from the bass drum to the hi-hat cymbal, greatly influencing all swing and bop drummers. Buddy Rich and Louie Bellson were just two who learned from his light but forceful playing, as Jones swung the Count Basie Orchestra with just the right accents and sounds.

    John Bonham's favourite Drummers

    I saw this video....i thought of John Bonham.....i think Papa jo Jones would of been an influence.....He does the hand drumming, and Bonham had a touch of jazz in his playing as well...they both have their own way of playing...but very similar.. https://youtu.be/GrKShqNkcnI

    Talked to Audrey Hamilton today......

    I comend her for telling her story..& the fact that she was there, on the inside...it means she knows the band better than any of us ever could...i would take her word over many of the 2nd hand opinions of the band....she was by Roberts side for the whole 77 tour....what an invaluable source of info on the world's greatest band.... & how can you blame Robert Plant...he was the singer in the world's most popular band...none of us could relate to what to what it was like to have to make the choices he made...nobody here has ever been that popular to...to say if i was him i would act like this...unless you've been tempted on this level, it only an opinion....at least Audrey got see first hand all the commotion, stress, & good times when Zeppelin was exploding with popularity...& getting a ticket to see the band, was next to impossible..

    Talked to Audrey Hamilton today......

    I find to believe that people feel sorry for Audrey... she got to fly with Zeppelin on their last tour... that must of been the most amazing experience....i know anyone on this forum would love to have that chance, & the fact that she told us that JpJ called her a home wrecker shows that she's up front... & it wasn't all fun & games... and gives us an idea, of the dark atmosphere that surounded the 77 tour.... thank you for your insight Audrey,

    Coming Soon - Updated Edition of Luis Rey's Led Zeppelin Live

    I wore out my 3rd edition..... It was one of the best books I've read on Zeppelin.... Most of the shows that he recommended people still rave about today... Looking forward to the new book.
