    Also compare it to this photo from the same show. The uncompromisingly precise power he played with is immediately identifiable, just as his feel is. He was an incredible, nearly incomparable talent. Very few musicians legitimately change the world of music, and even fewer do it without being a songwriter. Bonham did it from behind the kit in a band comprised of three immense talents, and because of that he is in a very elite group of musicians.

    This has been my favorite picture of Bonham for a very long time. When I look at this picture I can just feel the groove. It's in his expression and his body language. I can hear all the small embellishments and nuances that made him the greatest drummer of all time.
  3. I know Bonham wore glasses similar to that at the 7/7/80 Berlin show. I haven't looked to see when else he may have worn them. This photo was used on the Cover of Grooves Magazine in July 1979, but the same shoot generated the People cover from December 1976. I don't know when the shoot is from, but it can't be much earlier than that.

  5. I'm sure you've all heard it before and it's probably been posted in this thread, but the isolated drum track for Whole Lotta Love is incredible. Hearing Bonham start yelling around the 3:40 mark is amazing. I'd never noticed while listening to the album, but it's clear as day now that I know what to listen for. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gtgxe_ientE
  6. Bringing up an old thread... The only songs I regularly skip are Moby Dick and Since I've Been Loving You. I'm a drummer and John Bonham is my biggest influence, but rarely do I want to listen to a drum solo. Since I've Been Loving You just doesn't do it for me. As far as their down tempo blues jams go, I was spoiled on You Shook Me and I Can't Quit You Baby. No matter how many times I listen to those two I feel like the band's liable to change it up and jam something new. The entire band is overflowing with emotion on both songs and they each make a new listen worthwhile. Compared to those tracks, Since I've Been Loving You is way too formulaic and square. It sounds like they went into the studio knowing exactly what they wanted to lay down and then didn't deviate from that path. The ending is pretty great, but I'm not usually willing to listen to the first six minutes just to hear the final one and a half.
  7. My mind first jumped to two songs: Bonham going wild on the kick to end Good Time Bad Times, and the swinging roar of the whole band in Out on the Tiles. As far as songs go that don't fade, maybe Immigrant Song's dead stop after two and half minutes of fury, or the sweet, sweet release of The Ocean. Robert's "so good" to end The Ocean from 7/29/73 at the Garden is unreal.
