Re: John Bonham
I totally agree with all that you have replied here.
Think if he had lived today, maybe he had been much better, simply said, in his own class.
As bonzo said before Led Zeppelin's live concert in Royal Albert Hall, 1970:
"If my fills won't work today, I will quit drumming"
This shows that he was bloody serious with his dooings!
