  1. 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!
  2. 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?
  3. 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!
