  1. Sorry I guess I was way off on that one. I was going based on memory from years ago.
  2. Yeah, I dipped in up to £25,000, but that was really wishful thinking. 😞 If it sold for £52,000 incl the premium, that's actually not as much as I thought it would fetch. The premium is like 20% or more, and then there's VAT, I believe. I think the last gong of his which was much smaller sold for a lot more.
  3. Time for a Dave Grohl thread? Anyway, I am hopeful that someday Bonzo's family, i.e. Pat, Deb, Jason , will be willing to talk about him. Especially Jason, regarding his dad's gear, even if it's just for a Drum nerd magazine. I know there are people who would love to conduct some interviews, but Jason seems a bit cagey and protective of his dad's legacy, which is understandable. Still I think it would be of immense value to the legions of fans, drummers especially, since Bonzo is arguably the most famous and influential drummer in Rock, (maybe ever). Like recollections of the music he liked, his influences, his gear, (what happened to all that gear?). I find it odd that Jason has never played one of his dad's kits publicly (that I know of), or even showcased it in a video... or even just a snare. Fans would go nuts over seeing his kids played by Jason. Maybe he views that as sacrilege. πŸ€”
  4. I hope it has some substance, especially regarding Bonzo's musical interests, and isn't heavily relying on sordid road tales. The title isn't promising in that regard. Apparently the publisher is calling it the first biography of John Bonham....Hachette books either isn't aware of, or ignored Thunder of Drums. πŸ˜’
  5. Funny I just heard the Mars section of the Planets this afternoon on classical radio. It made me think how Holst really captured the drama and intensity of war. The scene at the beginning of Gladiator when the Romans square off against the Barbarians uses Mars to great effect.
  6. Previous link is bad. This one is active. Our arrangement of Four Sticks with a little twist. https://youtu.be/jKcde6tagy0
  7. 🍿🍿🍿
  8. Never ever heard this tale before either. What is possible is Jones and Anderson might have spoken about recorders, and Jones had the idea. Jones himself said he had recorders and he wanted to use them, but at first Jimmy wasn't keen. Also, it was not Abbey Road....it was Island Studios. Here is a very excellent analysis of Jones Recorder arrangement. https://youtu.be/OdZTfb2NblM

  10. This is such an important find. Hearing SIBLY from this show is just mind blowing...a superb rendition. Jimmy's on fire throughout this show , especially Heartbreaker, Black Dog , SIBLY and Dazed. Thanks so much to all involved in bringing this source to light. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸΌ
  11. Wow, really?! Well, shut my mouth.
