Might be more the partying and rock-God lifestyle was too much of a temptation. Once the partying started up again he wwent from good or at least manageable place (mindset) to PAAAARTTYYYYYYY. The touring was the devil's own temptation. But that is the issue, Bonham, from what I have read, drank and engaged in destructive behavior because he hated to tour, hated to be away from his family. Something tells me Bonham was a somewhat naive kind of guy who essentially talked Robert into staying in Zep, thinking Zep would morph into a post-66' Beatles type group. That is to say, Zep would continue to produce albums but would either not tour, or not tour again for several years. I have always believed the band should have gone on indefinite hiatus following the 80' European tour, put out two or three albums from 81' - 86' and then toured once Bonham's kids were grown so when they went on the road, Bonzo would have his family along for the ride.
