  1. https://www.rosswoodhall.com/john-bonhams-led-zeppelin-drum-kit/2017/07/24/ Anyone here know about this supposed auction of one of Bonzo's kits to raise $ for a statue of him to be placed in Redditch? The notes on this photo page say this kit was used to record When The Levee Breaks. (???) That seems like a specious claim. Common knowledge is that a new drum kit, or newly delivered kit was opened up at Headley Grange and they were set up in the entry way to the house. Page specifically mentions this in It Might Get Loud. However, Andy Johns claims that he and Bonzo moved the drumkit from one room to the hallway while the rest of the guys took a break during recording at HG. He says nothing about a new kit so the stories differ a bit there and Bonzo already had green sparkle kits by summer of '70. So, whether or not it was a newly delivered kit, it would've most likely been a larger green sparkle kit... not this smaller kit that was most likely used only for the first few weeks of the first US tour. There is a slight chance that Bonzo may have used this black pearl kit for some studio work but that seems impossible to know, unless there is a confirmed statement from the band or Andy Johns etal. Not that all of this would make much of a difference, they are still apparently Bonzo's drums and Plant seems to be part of this event. I wonder who owned the kit. Plant?? Jason?
  2. Nice interview with Bonzo from July 27 1974 issue of 'Sounds' , a UK music paper. Sorry if this has already been posted but I thought it would be appreciated here.
  3. Drum practice

    Beginner drummer here. Started out on a few Zeppelin songs today. I had to pause to say sorry to the honorable Bonham for hacking up a couple rhythm and fills. I promised not to give up though. Just hope his ears don't hurt in heaven. I'll get it right. Promise. Patience!
  4. Paul McCartney's Supergroup

    I don't know that this is "news" exactly, but I came across this on Ultimate Classic Rock and found it amusing: http://ultimateclassicrock.com/paul-mccartney-forming-wings/ Definitely provides an insight into who McCartney thought were the best musicians at that time.
  5. https://db.tt/CFBui4r7 I know there are quite a few out there who can't stand listening to drum covers, but as Led Zeppelin fans, I emplore you to consider listening to mine. Tonight I jumped into the studio with my engineer friend Ovidiu (he's Romanian, I'm English. Hi!) and I decided to do a few covers; Locked Out Of Heaven, In My Life, to name a few. Almost knackered out at this point, I decided to take on the mightiest of songs, Achilles Last Stand as I knew conquering that would ensure my right of passage as a man, and a drummer - And I tried to pay homage to my hero justly. First take was going well, but a short way through realised the track wasn't loud enough in my headphones for me to follow, especially as the Zeppelin tracks can be muddy at times. So we adjusted that. Next take was going well too, until half way through the fackin' crash cymbal stand decided to collapse on me and the drum kit! 3rd take, and by this point I was nearing exhaustion but this time I was ready, and I really think I did a good job and wanted to share it with you guys. For the drummers in here, I hope you appreciate the smoothness and accuracy with which I performed that blinding single stroke drum fill near the beginning Let me know what you guys think of my efforts, and remember to turn it up!
  6. Plant and Bonham

    Other than the punching incident, do we have any other cases of "banter" between Plant and Bonham? I also know of a bit of arguing about timing in IMTOD. I'm curious.
  7. Biggest fail live

    Hi ! We can say it, Led Zeppelin was an awesome live band .. most of the time .. but sometimes thing just doesn't work right. It can be interesting to see some fail moments they did. And sorry if I make mistake I'm french Well it wasn't Led zeppelin but for Robert Plant, I think of the Live AID in 1985 when he totally stop Page in his solo on Stairway to Heaven, maybe it's the fault of one of the drummer who start the fast beat but Plant heard this repeated lick thousands of time so he knew it's wasn't the end of the solo. Link to the video : https://youtu.be/CBk-iRihSUg?t=8m25s For Jimmy Page,it's definitely the solo of Ten Years Gone at Oakland in 1977, That's just horrible : https://youtu.be/Ha11bkQGPsk?t=3m49s I can't really think of anything really bad about Bonham and even less about John Paul Jones. Maybe you have some fail to post ?
  8. It's not for educational purposes as I already understand/know all the tricks. It's purely for entertainment purposes. Often or not, I'll be on YouTube trying to find good, solid, grooving drummers, but rarely see any taking on a Zeppelin cover - which to me, would be porn. A lot of the time, I find bad covers. I can't find one decent drum cover of Wearing and Tearing, and unfortunately don't have the equipment or facilities to make my own videos yet. So are there any gems out there that you think I may have missed? PS. Most drummers on here are going to be Bonham-inspired, so if you catch this topic, I wouldn't mind seeing some of your work as well!
  9. The man was a BORN leader and he applied those inborn skills to his instrument of choice and lead the band extremely well. As much as Jimmy Page is thought of as the leader, and of course they were all equals in what they did together, I saw Jimmy Page as more of sculptor, an advisor, and a poet. To me John Bonham was the man of action - his stamp of authority can be heard on each of the songs. To call Led Zeppelin a guitarist's band is only partly true. This was/is a musician's band, but in reality it is pure drum porn. My opinion is most likely based upon fantasy... what are your opinions on this?
  10. Doug Henthorn is the vocalist in Joe Bonamassa's excellent version of Tea For One from his You and Me album. As Doug is an exceptional vocalist / guitarist in his own right, I wanted to put some information out here for everyone to check out. Doug was the leader of the Healing Sixes for 15 years, until the disbanding of that band in Feb. 2102. During that time, the Healing Sixes released 4 excellent albums (all still available on itunes and Amazon). Their 2nd release, Enormosound, also featured Jason Bonham on drums. Since the end of Healing Sixes, Doug has been doing background vocal work for such artists as Joe Bonamassa and John Hiatt - while also writing new songs for his planned first solo album. Here is a link to Doug's recent performance of Tea For One with Joe Bonamassa at the Hammersmith Apollo on Mar 28, 2013. If you enjoy what you see here, or are already a fan of Doug's work, please go to his Facebook page and/or his Website and let him know! Doug's certainly a talent that deserves a wider audience. On Facebook, you can find him at https://www.facebook.com/thehenthornllc His current website is at http://www.doughenthorn.com/ The Healing Sixes website is at http://www.healingsixes.com/ Here are a few more videos for you to enjoy. Thanks everyone, Enjoy!
