Default Re: Bootleg John Bonham???

I have to agree with the majority and say none of it sounds like Bonzo. the snare has too much of a jazz/fusion sound to it (probably a more modern tuning than from back then). The kick drum is barely audible, and when it is, it's nothing spectacular. The cymbal attacks are too weak. Overall the drummer just doesn't sound like he/she has the confidence of Bonham's playing and the timing sounds a bit off at times. To me it sounds like a marching snare drummer, just learning to play a full kit - not Bonzo.
