Default Re: JOHN BONHAM

in some ways i could agree with you ewanlaing but always remember to put the event into its context. what were other rocks solos like at the time. remember that you and i have been spoilt by almost thirty years now of drummers who have done wonderful solos AFTER bonham. read my signature and understand that binham is a giant upon whose shoulders many drummers now stand taller. led zep were quite indulgent in the solo department. but i'm not really interested in bonham as a soloist. i ABSOLUTELY love his grooves and structural ideas. i have never attempted to cover moby dick but i can cover nearly every other zep song, for no other reason but for the joy of playing along with the man himself. i learned to groove from two drummers: john binham and phil rudd. funnily enough it was phil collins and chester thompson that got me into solos.
