Did Mr Bonham ever drum for other musicians after Led Zep became megastars.

If I'm not mistaken, he and Robert performed with Paul sometime in the late 70s... 79, I think?

Yes, he played on a few tracks throughout the 70's with people like Jimmy Stevens (1971) , Roy Wood (1979), Paul McCartney ( Beware My Love outtake) and Sir Paul's Back To The Egg session, which is where that pic was taken.  He might be on Lulu's Everbody's Got the Clap , but I'm not convinced. He played on  Lord Sutch and Heavy Friends but that was recorded in '69. I wish he had guested with more people. I love hearing him support other bands, but most of these were not so good IMO. I wish he had the opportunity to play with someone like Stevie Wonder, or some soul and funk artists that he loved. That would have been epic. Or Supertramp!

Don’t forget Son of Dracula (1974 comedy/music/horror film) w/ Harry Nilsson’s band. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Son_of_Dracula_(1974_film)

Thank you for the replies. Oh for the Stevie Wonder collaboration. Wonder how a session with George Clinton would have gone.

He also played on Jimmy Stevens 'Don't Freak Me Out' LP (1972). Two tracks if I remember correctly.

Haha, I didn't mention that because I believe Bonzo was miming to the original soundtrack which has Ringo on drums. 

😆👍🥁
