Re: Was John Bonham aware of Neil Peart?
i donīt recall hearing Neil Peart being mentioned among the greats until Moving Pictures (1984) . not a slight on his earlier works, but a comment on his standing in the music community, as i remember it.
before Moving Pictures, Rush were regarded as Zep rip-offs. again, not a slight, nor agreeing, nor disagreeing.
whether that would make Bonzo inclined to check them out, i donīt know.
has anyone ever asked Neil what his thoughts are on Zep / Bonzo ?
