  1. A while back I posted a link to my Modern Drummer transcription of Jason's performance of "Good Times Bad Times" from Celebration Day. I forgot I put together a video syncing the MIDI track I created to the Celebration Day footage, here is the video if you'd like to check it out: The video has a 100% speed MIDI drum track, a 75% speed MIDI drum track, and an overlay of the MIDI drum track onto the original audio. Also, here is the link to the transcription/MIDI files: https://www.moderndrummer.com/2013/01/jason-bonham-celebration-day-transcription/ Thanks, E
  2. Slow-motion video and transcriptions of Moby Dick from Earl's Court:
  3. I'll check out a guitar show, thanks. I used to hit the record conventions, not too many happening anymore like you said. Thanks again. --Eric
  4. Yeah, the intro can be tricky, starting with the left hand. A lot of drummers don't seem to realize that John and Jason start their patterns with their left, including the famous triplets: L R Foot. I'll look into "For Your Life" - great groove! Thanks for the comments. --Eric
  5. Yeah he was terrific in Detroit, inspiring! I keep hearing about the Detroit show video, I know this isn't the place, but can anyone point me in the right direction of where to find it? I've been looking for a while - thanks! --Eric
  6. I think the only reason my concert T's survived was because they were boxed up and buried between other clothes! Hidden away for years, glad I found them!
  7. Hey Dallas - thanks for checking out the transcription, cool photo. Did you happen to play along with the MP3? I know it's impossible to capture a drummers feel with a computer, but I tried to get that behind the beat thing happening with the sequence. Thanks for the props on the Buddy vids, I really appreciate it. --Eric
  8. Hey Everyone, My friends at Modern Drummer Magazine have just published my transcription and play-along MP3 of "Good Times Bad Times" from Celebration Day on their Website: http://www.moderndru...n/#.UQrL0vK2KSq The transcription includes stickings and the MP3 of the drum part is based on a tempo map from the Celebration Day CD. I hope you have a chance to check it out, it was great to really hear how Jason approached this song. Thanks! --Eric
  9. Sorry to bump this thread, but I posted a couple of years ago about the T-shirt I bought at the Detroit Outrider show. I'm in the middle of a move and found the shirt and ticket stub. I thought some of you might like to see them: Thanks, Eric
  10. The drumset Bonzo is using here is the British Staccato brand, slightly different than North drums in the horn region, as you can see in this pic: --Eric
  11. Just a quick correction to "On This Day": "He had been given a solo deal and his first single was 'Skin Deep' - a classic Gene Krupa number -" --------------------------------------- "Skin Deep" was actually Louie Bellson's featured number with Duke Ellington. Bellson composed the tune himself. --Eric
  12. The drummer to the left of Page in the top pic is Ellington's drummer, Rufus "Speedy" Jones. -Eric
  13. Kat24, Here's a vid of Buddy and me from a project I did a couple of years ago: -Eric
  14. Hi, I met with Carl late last year and asked him about Bonham. Carl and John grew up in the same area of Birmingham and used to fill in for eachother's bands as teenagers. Carl told me that he recommended John for the Chris Farlowe and the Thunderbirds gig as Carl was leaving that band to join the Crazy World of Arthur Brown. Carl said John stayed with Farlowe for 6 months and then joined Zeppelin (I always thought John turned down the Farlowe gig). I never asked if he and John jammed together, I'll have to remember next time. Shameless plug alert: I've been working with Carl on his f
