Re: John Bonham
Instrumentalists will always be able to get better. Once something is recorded and released then some other person can hear that and expand on it or simply be inspired by it and do something even greater. It's like my opinion on Hendrix. He was (and is) a great guitarist. However, once he recorded and released albums, anyone who had the talent could expand on what he did. Now we have Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, and a bunch of others who may not actually have similar styles, but were probably influenced by Hendrix even if it was indirectly by someone who was influenced by him.
