  4. Here is my first YouTube video devoted to breaking down and demonstrating Bonzo's drumming on the Royal Albert Hall version of Moby Dick. I just posted part 2 today as well. My video channel name is BONHAMOLOGY. I am also nearly done with the complete studio catalog. I only have two songs left, Moby Dick ( studio version) and Hot Dog. There are also well numerous live versions, a complete 1973 style set list of video drum covers, as well as many instructional lesson videos. Check out my playlists on the YouTube channel.
  5. The People's Front Of Zeppelin is a new YouTube channel devoted to playing covers of Zep's music, instrumentally (for now, until we find a great singer). Most of our cover videos are inspired by Zep's live style performances, but will also be posting studio versions as well. Please subscribe to our channel and follow us on Instagram and Facebook. Oh...and we are NOT the Zeppelin People's Front! 😏 Here is a link.... Hope you dig what we are about! If so, please spread the word!
  6. Happy Birthday John Henry Bonham. 🎂🍺 He would have turned 70 years old today. If he had been able to check his alcoholism and survive September 25, 1980, it is still a stretch to think Led Zeppelin would still be going a la the Rolling Stones today. Eventually, as the '80s and '90s wore on, you think the band would tire of going on the road...especially family men Bonham and Jones. There's also the question of whether they would have been one of those bands that just keep churning out records and tours like the Stones and U2? Or would they have stopped at some point in the '80s
  7. Can anyone identify the date and or location of the few photos of Bonzo playing behind two bass drums? I have only seen maybe three pics , which all seem to be from the same gig /venue.
  8. When browsing through the thousands of Led Zeppelin photos through different sorts of media, I've noticed something peculiar about Bonzo- The very worried look in his eyes in many pictures. Sure, there are many more pictures of him with a beaming smile on his face, but none of the other members of the group seemed to have that very worried, old-soul look on their face at times. Maybe it ties into the fact that John also looked like he was 40 when he was 20. Sometimes I wonder if he didn't have bouts of bi-polar depression, as most pics either have him happier than anyone or looking very worrie
  9. Terry from Bonzoleum and I have teamed up to create a YouTube channel dedicated to discussing and breaking down John Bonham's drumming. BONZOLOGY. Give it a look !! In our debut videos we discuss Bonzo's drumming on The Song Remains The Same in the style of the legendary June 21 1977 ( LISTEN TO THIS EDDIE BOOT) . We will be posting new videos on a regular basis and are taking requests, suggestions for topics. The video below is me playing the end of TSRTS , leading into the Rover intro, and a complete Sick Again, ala 1977 style. This is not meant to be a literal transcription,
  10. OK, so my friend Terry , aka Bonzoleum came over last week and we geeked out on a couple Bonzo topics... one of which was the stuff he played on live versions of D & C. This is just the end , but for those who like this kind of drum geek mania - the whole video, and a couple others we did can be found on YouTube. Here are both. We plan to unite and make a new YouTube channel focusing on Bonham's drumming. Stay tuned! P.S. Apologies for the vertical perspective...it is all terry's fault ! Future videos will be in horizon aspect. Sheesh!!
  11. Post any interviews with Jimmy Page on the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin here,thanks.
  12. I understand Bonzo recorded on "Beware my love" with Paul McCartney (Wings) & "Keep your hands on the Wheel" with Roy Wood. Who else did he "Guest Record" with?
  13. Hello all, I will be visiting the United Kingdom this May. I want to take advantage of the trip and find places to visit that have significance in relation to Led Zeppelin. Whether it be venues they have played, places they have lived, or museums. Please let me know!
  14. Hi everybody! i'm a huge fan of led zeppelin. I live in rome and i think that this new tribute band is very great! Tell me waht you think about! cheers
  15. All of them excellent. Most best drummers list put Peart, Bonham and Moon in the top 3. Neil Peart is probably the best drummer from a technical standpoint. He's very calculative, methodical, precise and technical in his drumming. John Bonham, however, probably has the best sense of rhythm of any drummer. His drums come in hard and crashing, with a sense of heft that no other drummer can seem to emulate. Keith Moon was just the animal, the id, total chaos, and he tried to be as unique and off beat as he could, while raging at certain moments. Moon's one of the best drummers
  16. Hi all, first post! I've noticed that Robert Plant has made a drawing to support The Big Draw charity. It got me wondering, what other artwork has been created personally by the band? So thought it might be fun if everyone shared their pictures of Led Zeppelin artwork, or examples of any other art the band made outside music. By the way the bidding on the Robert Plant drawing is only at £100 at the moment, so it might be a good opportunity for any passionate Zep fans! What do you think is the story behind this drawing?
  17. Hi All, I have been searching for years to find a picture of John Bonham's 1977 drum kit (Ludwig Stainless Steel) taken from behind the kit, maybe if one were standing near the gong and taking the picture toward the audience. There is a very similar picture in the Good Times Bad Times Zeppelin book of a shot like this, but of his Amber Vistilite Kit. I will try and find the image and post. The closest I found have found is the image below, however I am looking for one without John, and possibly a higher res? Thanks all! Mike
  18. Had John Bonham still been with us today, it goes without saying that he would be, by now, an elder statesman of rock in the same way that Jimmy, Robert and John Paul Jones are recognized to be by legions of fans today. I imagine he would be retired from the music business and would be a sober and loving proud father and grandfather. He wouldn't have been flashy and capitalizing on his fame but would appreciate the genuine recognition for all that he'd accomplished. I like to think he would be on his farm with Pat and family and perhaps, occasionally, sit in with bands to smash the skins
  19. Hey, I've been looking around on YouTube and elsewhere about the way Bonham played this beat. Everyone I've seen play this beat plays it with on hand on the high hat and plays the groove that way. But the way I hear it he plays with two hands on the high hat, going R-L-R-L-R-R-L-R-L-R-L-R. I have been playing it this way for a long time and it sound great and it also sound just like he plays it. I should have a video on YouTube soon with me playing it. But what do you think?
  20. Found this on another forum and thought I'd share; 1) It is said that the atomic clock in Colorado gets its timing from John Bonham. 2) His synchopated sonic symphony is credited with inspiring the exhaust notes of the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and Citroen GT. 3) Moby Dick was used to dig the Chunnel. 4) His subtle timing and delicate wrists made three legendary Jazz drummers envious. 5) His right foot was used as a pile driver to drill for oil in the North Atlantic. 6) His 30 minute drum solo once registered a 4.5 on the Richter scale during a concert in Germany in March 1973.
  21. Is there anywhere online where I can find the full Led Zeppelin August 4th Knebworth performance.
  22. *****NOTE: I am new to this forum; I am NOT new to anything Led Zeppelin. Please, I ask you to ignore the first part of that sentence, and consider the second. Appreciated. ****** ***The Song Remains the Same Complete Re-EDIT On Way! *** [Note]: Individual evaluation only, not a means of piracy; this will NOT be distributed in any such way; again, my individual evaluations I've always preferred original TSRTS footage, be it a bootleg or 8mm. However, the actual viewing experience is rather limited by the subpar quality even terrible for 1970's cinematics. Honestly, the "film" portion
  23. "A fund has been set-up to install a permanent memorial in the town to one of Britain's greatest musicians and arguably Redditch's most famous resident. The John Bonham Memorial Fund will aim to collect as much money as possible to have a statue or sculpture erected in honour of the Led Zeppelin drummer who was born, educated and grew up in Redditch. It is hoped space will be found within the town centre for the statue, with the bandstand area previously mooted." http://www.redditchstandard.co.uk/2013/08/02/news-Bonham-statue-bid-kicks-off-with-bang-79816.html
