RIP Bonzo - 31 May 1948 - 25 September 1980

Recommended Posts

I was just graduating from Kiss to Led Zeppelin. I was hearing the music of LZ in the background radio from my sisters room  and in the neighborhood school yards. I was also listening to Physical Graffiti borrowed from my neighbor. 

I was heading to religion class after school about 430 pm when my heavy metal long haired neighbor came walking down the street saying “ Bonham’s dead..Bonham’s dead “..head down shoulders slumped ..,he kept walking. Never stopped. 
The next day I heard Carol Miller on NYC WNEW play The Rover , Stairway and Ten Years Gone..in that order. I knew at that moment I was in for the long run. I’m still here.
