Bonham was obviously influenced by Morello like a lot of us! Far More Drums from Time Further Out is one the greatest drum solos of all time.
Wow thats lucky that you got to go to a drum clinic of his. And now i that i think of it, John Bonham does seem to kinda play his solos like Morello, except its alot more heavy sounding. Pretty cool.
