Default Re: John Bonham (Bonzo)

I think it comes down to defining the terms. Plant was a great rock singer, exactly as good of a singer as he needed to be for an all-time great rock band, but comparing his singing technically to some of the greatest singers from all genres, he falls short. Bonham, on the other hand, was a drumming god. So they were equally matched in Led Zeppelin, but Bonham was extraordinary to the point of inspiring awe and wonder.
