Default Re: John Bonham

That "firesticks" cat was somethin' special, that's for sure. Tried his best at rousting my ire on an Alex Van Halen thing. And it's so funny, 'cause I'm from Pasadena and only a few years younger than the Van Halen's, seen them so many times for free in the early 70's and if there's anything I know about, it's about Van Halen. I was buyin' rock albums the same time they were, and a month later they were doin' covers off that album. So I think I might know what influences Alex had. A buddy of mine was the cat who turned then on to the song "Ice Cream Man". Yeah, that "firesticks" dude, wow.
