  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. Is there anywhere online where I can find the full Led Zeppelin August 4th Knebworth performance.
  5. Of the two Knebworth performances which was better? Also, which performance was on the Led Zeppelin DVD.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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 the
  9. 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 amaz
  10. 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 w
  11. These have never been published anywhere in the past 37+ years.... Thanks, Sam for archiving them!! 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.!!
  12. 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 Z
  13. 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
