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 or '90s only to reunite 20 or so years down the road, like Steely Dan or the Stooges or Velvet Underground did? Not that it matters. While it is tantalizing to think of the music they could have made had Bonham lived, the music they did create from 1968-1980 is more than enough to secure their legacy.
