which is exactly why you cannot compare jojo to john. thirty years ago he was legendary on a bass drum...given his progress and that he had lived until today one can only imagine what he could have done. he was great in his time and jojo is great in his time now.

it is precisely this sort of unrealistic sentimentality that causes problems. i know with certainty that there are thousands of people on the planet right now who are better in every way than john bonham at single pedal technique. if anything i think this is a positive reflection of the effect he had.
ps: because we all should: see further ... stand on the shoulders of giants.
