Re: John Bonham
"After many years of thinking that drumming was all about chops and technique I recently had an epiphany last year. I watched the Who at the Isle of Wight dvd a year ago and it was like the heavens opened up and Bonham cracked me over the head with a holy drumstick."
See, he was watching the DVD of Keith Moon playing with the Who at the Isle of Wight, and he was thinking how drumming is all about chops and technique, and the ghost of John Bonham came down from the heavens and bonked him on the head and said, "No, watch Moon and you'll see that's it's about passion and fire and playing your guts out!"
I had to read it six times to get that. I could be wrong.
