  1. Four Sticks, which they did only once in Copenhagen or wherever it was, wish there were a soundboard of that show from May 1971.
  2. Bonhamite

    Bonham?

    Bonzo always will be my preference.
  3. Indeed people have to remember what Memorial Day is for, and it's not an excuse for firing up the grill.
  4. The scene in the first few minutes where we see Robert Plant's two children, Carmen Jane and Karac, playing in the nude in this body of water, I doubt very much parents would let their children do such a thing nowadays, even if the body of water were secluded as it had been here.
  5. Where is the contest notice in the magazine issue of having a chance to win this set of Paiste 2002 40th Anniversary cymbals? I haven't obtained a copy of this periodical yet and I would like to see that.
  6. Happy Birthday!!! Have a good one.

  7. Aren't the photos with Bonham's stainless steel kit from an unreleased video of a live gig? I am sure it's not Seattle from Sunday, July 17, 1977 that's already out there. Which gig are the photos from?
  8. Thursday, September 25, 1980 - The day the music really died.
  9. I do video production myself, so making home movies on the laptop is a good place for your 10 year old son to start.
  10. Good place to start for your son making home videos, I make home videos myself.
  11. Thought I would share photos of the two Ludwig "Zep Set" kits I own; the Ludwig Classic Maple "Zep Set" in Natural Maple finish and the Ludwig Limited Edition Stainless Steel John Bonham kit: Also included are photos of the two other kits I am in quest of that I told all of you about in the post introducing myself in the Meet & Greet folder. As stated before, the Ludwig Classic Maple "Zep Set" in Green Sparkle Wrap finish would be custom ordered with the Ludwig blue-olive parallelogram badges instead of the keystone badges you see in the photo. Don't worry, I have all the other drums that go with the Ludwig Classic Maple "Zep Set" in Natural Maple finish, they are not missing.
  12. To answer why I started to play the drums, I don't know what else to say except it's an instrument I have always enjoyed, on my seventh (1978) or eighth (1979) birthday I had gotten as a gift this Disney Rocktet toy trap drum set. Had also taken lessons in the mid-1980s, in 1984 I had gotten my very first Ludwig set, it had been advertised on our local cable system by an area doctor, Piano Black in color, with Granittone on the insides of the toms and bass drum. The snare drum happened to be a 5" x 14" Ludwig Supraphonic I believe, the toms and bass drum sizes were 8" x 12", 9" x 13", 16" x 16", 14" x 22". Of course, I had sold that kit, replacing it with the kits I mentioned in my first post. I certainly am sticking to playing John Bonham's drum sizes from hereafter. Perhaps sometime I will post photos of them. By the way, the two other Ludwig drum kits I have my eye on are the Ludwig Amber Vistalite "Zep Set" reissue kit with a matching 6.5" x 14" snare drum, and another Ludwig Classic Maple "Zep Set," this time around in Green Sparkle Wrap finish with the blue/olive Ludwig parallelogram badges that Ludwig offers as a custom option on their drums. That kit would have a matching 8" x 14" Ludwig Classic Maple Snare Drum to go with it, also with the parallelogram badge.
