Default Re: John Bonham

anyone else here ever heard "Pat's Delight", the pre "Moby Dick" solo? I downloaded 2 boots of it and its incredible. Shows a bigger Buddy Rich influence than "Moby Dick"
Yeah I have a few versions of it. One is a bootleg from one of the first shows they ever played in the U.S. at Gonzaga, 12/68. He does the Max Roach "The drum also waltzes" bit like he does in the early "Moby Dick" performances but you're right he does a lot of Buddy Rich inspired single stroke snare rolls and flying fills in "Pat's Delight," and he goes absolutely nuts with the bass drum triplets. You can tell, at 20 years old he's cocky as hell and loves showing that right foot off.
