sorry to differ but the half time shuffle played in that song is actually not his patented groove .... his limb progression there is nothing very un-typical when you yourself start playing that shuffle.
but yes the way that beat pulls the song continuously is unique and the drum sound definitely adds to the flavour ........ probably it would be a better point if one argues that only Bonham could articulate that beat so tastefully during the conception of the song ....
