Default Re: John Bonham

I'm seriously considering buying a 14 inch mounted tom (with a snare stand), have a 16 inch and 18 inch floor tom and getting a nice chrome ludwig snare. Then go on ebay and buy some nice Paiste cymbals. I really think 'Bonzo" would of submersed himself into other realms of music if he had lived. He probably would of talked to the greats like Max Roach and Elvin Jones, learned from them, maybe even play jazz at some events. Right before Tony Williams died, he discussed putting together a Heavy Metal band. Imagine what John would of accomplished. I admire Will Calhoun, Neil Peart, Tony Williams, Elvin Jones, Art Blakey, Jack Dejohnette, and many others but one can not forget John Bonham!
