Default Re: John Bonham

I LOVE JB! When I first heard his playing I didn't like it at all. I thought he was a club footed banger. It took me awhile to understand his style of playing. But hey, I'm slow - I thought Hendrix was just noise 'til his 2nd album came out! Bonham was so forceful and simple - every stroke counted. Very assesrtive!I think his playing had a devilish sense of humor to it that came with his power and confidence.

Anyway. can anyone explain the drum intro to Rock and Roll? How do you count it or what is the feel to it? Is it a tape edit? I play just the intro over and over (iPod) and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. I love it! I've listened to it ever since Zoso came out and have played it countless times. I've never known a drummer to nail it perfectly so it must be a real bear. Can any of you?

ps> if I didn't love bass so much I'd be a drummer! You guys RULE! peaces
I'm the bass player - I'm yer best friend!
