  1. I don't know how many people have seen this video, or if this has been posted before, but I thought this was a cool video. It warmed my heart to see Jason give his father the fitting tribute he deserves. The part from 3:46-3:53 is funny, cool, and heartwarming all at the same time. That particular part seemed like Jason's way of saying, "Yep. That was my Dad. He was/is the best. I can't touch him here, so why even try." R.I.P. John Bonham
  2. We have just completed a brand new fine art portfolio of prints taken by renowned photographer Herbie Greene in 1969 in his studio in San Francisco. Here is a link to the dedicated webpage of the Led Zeppelin Portfolio. Many of these photos have not been seen before and are intimate portraits of the band just before their first US tour in 1969. http://ledzeppelinportfolio.comLedZeppelinPortfolioPR.pdf
  3. http://kroq.cbslocal...me-kingofbeats/ <------ link to vote They’re literally the heartbeat of their bands, providing the rhythm that powers the music of bands from all genres. From the legendary stomp of late Led Zeppelin bash-master John Bonham to the intricate complexities displayed by Rush’s Neil Peart to the hip-hop-influenced punk beats of Travis Barker, the list of legendarily talented rock drummers is as varied as it is vast. In a musical world where DJs, drum machines and computer-generated beats continue to encroach on the realm of actual drummers, these trap-masters and their bands keep it real with flesh and blood rhythms. Narrowing the field down to 40 (or so) of the best beat-keepers to ever rock a kit, it’s your votes that will determines who reigns supreme as the single greatest rock drummer of all-time. Support your favorite drummer in the poll linked above! Go VOTE!!! Bonzo deserves top spot without a doubt!
  4. Long Live Bonzo! For those that are not aware of drummer extraordinaire Brian Tichy's brainchild here is the video interview with iDrum magazine's Ian Croft in which Brian details how our fantastic show/event got its start and since that show September 25, 2010, 3 others have occurred.It is now called "Bonzo's Birthday Bash" and most just refer to it as Bonzo Bash now. The show is Executive Produced by Joe Sutton and I am very proud to have been added as producer to the last show. The poster for the most recent show is attached and many many many photos of all who have played this amazing event can be found at our highly active Facebook page https://www.facebook...zosBirthdayBash which we'd love all Bonzonians to come be part of. Here is the press release so you can see just how much heart and soul Brian Tichy puts into this tribute to John Henry Bonham in a fashion unmatched by any other who is not his blood*. BONZO'S BIRTHDAY BASH! SPECIAL GUESTS OF GROOVE ADDED! A Tribute Concert To John Henry Bonham Of Led Zeppelin Rock's top drummers play tribute to rock's greatest drummer! Thursday, May 31st, House Of Blues, Los Angeles Bonzo's Birthday Bash just keeps getting bigger! More than 20 of rock's top drummers, a great opening acoustic band, a great house band, extremely charismatic guest musicians and speakers are all there ready to go! But now, on top of that, we welcome aboard Poison drummer Rikki Rockett as well as Lynch Mob frontman Oni Logan who will both be joining in on the fun! Also adding his thoughts and stories to the event will be Snow drummer Stephen Quadros, aka the "Fight Professor", who is one of mixed martial arts' most respected commentators. Stephen will be speaking in between drummers as will be legendary producer/engineer Eddie Kramer, who is also showcasing his private photos of his time with Bonzo and Led Zeppelin. Bonzo's Birthday Bash is now also offering 2 VIP packages packed with goods every Bonzo fan would live to have. The "Whole Lotta Love" and "Kashmir" packages are available here: http://www.briantichy.com/bonzo.php Singing with opening acoustic act "The Calm Before The Storm" featuring guitar master Mitch Perry, ex-Ozzy bassist Phil Soussan, and Quiet Riot bassist Chuck Wright will be Chas West (Bonham/Lynch Mob/ The Moby Dicks), Shaun Williamson and Lorraine Lewis (Femme Fatale). After 3 groundbreaking tribute shows entitled "Bonzo: The Groove Remains The Same" and a collective passion and respect amongst all the participating drummers, past and present to John Bonham, the greatest rock drummer ever, Brian Tichy and Joe Sutton have decided to go for it once again! Tichy says, "It is a relatively simple concept. When I first thought of this, the idea seemed too cool NOT to try. You get a John Bonham replica drum set, complete with gong and timpani, up front, center stage, and have each drummer perform their favorite Led Zeppelin song with a house band (The Moby Dicks). There are no rules other than to have fun putting your own groove and character into your song choice! It's such a unique night, seeing how all these great drummers approach the same drum set making it their own! And 'The Moby Dicks' hold their own as a true force to be reckoned with! We have structure, and within the structure there is total freedom, making the pace and vibe of this show somewhere between a backyard party and a.... backyard party with a killer band playing Led Zep songs! Haha! 'The Groove Remains The Same' has morphed into 'Bonzo's Birthday Bash', as we celebrate John Bonham's birthday! Tichy went as far as to say, "Bonzo's Birthday Bash is now even more so the equivalent of a gong on fire on top of an erupting volcano next to a wildebeest migration complete with lurking, starving crocodiles and a fireworks finale across the river that not even the Olympics can rival!!" John Bonham deserves it! His right foot alone deserves it!! Bonzo's Birthday Bash is the ultimate tribute show and that's that! So get a ticket, get a good seat, grab a now classic "Bonzo Burger" and get into the festivities! Tickets available at www.hob.com Tickets are $25 and $30 day of show Doors at 8pm.

  5. I saw the Red Hot Chili Peppers here in Phoenix two weeks ago. It was on the anniversary of John's death. My thoughts were raw regarding that anniversary as I had just finished my Tumblr essay about my life with Led Zeppelin (below) that day, and sent it out to around 100 friends. In the essay I write about the day I was told by a high school classmate that Bonham had died. September 25, 1980. John Bonham was my first true hero in my life. The news of his death was a crushing blow. The show was good, as good as it could have been without John Frusciante. During the course of the show I was so focused on the band (and Flea!) that I forgot about the date. At the very end of the show, after all members had left the stage, drummer Chad Smith walked up to the microphone, alone. It was weird, since I have never seen him address the audience in all the times I have seen RHCP. He leaned into the mic. "BONHAM!!" (then a pause) "JOHN BONHAM!" (a longer pause) "JOHN FUCKING BONHAM!!!" (then, as if to explain to all the teens, and they were legion) "JOHN BONHAM WAS THE DRUMMER IN LED ZEPPELIN. HE WAS THE GREATEST ROCK DRUMMER EVER. JOHN HENRY BONHAM DIED 32 YEARS AGO TODAY. I LOVE THE GUY. HE IS MY HERO." I didn't see it coming. I was stunned, and instantly remembered the essay I sent out earlier that afternoon. And the horrible news I got 32 years ago that very day. I was frozen still, and overcome with emotion. As a drummer, I have, over time, become very aware of drummers like Dave Grohl, Chad Smith, and others, who have been very vocal in their love of John. The drummer who changed their lives, and ours. Trampled Under Foot. My Zeppelin Tumblr essay. http://petedelorean.tumblr.com/

I wish I would have had a better camera than a crappy little Kodak 110 camera with a single roll of 24 images for Houston 1975...Ahh,. the "old days" What I would have given to have had my Nikon! Time to share them - these are for DavidZoso, to add to his mighty archive....! ENJOY L.Z.F.!!
  7. Hats off to Led Zeppelin are very proud to announce that from 2012 our promotion and management will be handled by Bandwagon Productions and Warren Grant. Warren’s experience in the music industry is second only to his father, the late Peter Grant, legendary manager of Led Zeppelin, who rewrote the book on band management. Having spent several years working in many areas, Warren has decided to return to music promotion and sees Hats Off To Led Zeppelin as the perfect band to return with. Not content with being Europe's best and most authentic tribute to Led Zeppelin, Hats off to Led Zeppelin have managed to go one step further and been taken under the wing of Warren Grant, son of the legendary Led Zepplein manager Peter Grant. Warren went to see the band perform last year in Bournemouth, close to his home, and was so impressed with the band he decided to approach them about joining forces. Warren said 'Hats off to you guy...keep up the outstanding work, you really did the band justice' Come and see the band on tour all over the UK and beyond. www.hatsofftoledzeppelin.co.uk April 27th De Pul, Uden, Netherlands. 28th the Rock Temple, Kerkrade, Netherlands.

  8. I wish Led Zeppelin would have played Custard Pie live because I would really be interested in seeing Robert’s mannerisms throughout the song… its all such a clever innuendo
