I'm new to drumming, apart from a kit as a three year old (nearly 40 years ago) and have to say thanks for all the contribtions to this thread. I've read a few posts from the start and end and will go through the rest of it at some point.
JBs sound, pocket, feel or whatever you want to call it, has always been my main attraction to Led Zeppelin and reading this thread has reconfirmed that he had something relatively different and special.
I'll be looking around the forum for guidance in learning but thought I'd sign off with this link
I did a quick search for The Senators and got no results here, so enjoy John Bonhams first recording.
