Re: John Bonham
john's speed was impressive for his day but i never cared for how fast he did this or that. it is his groove, his taste that keeps me listening to zep on nearly a daily basis for 14 years now. when i want to emulate bonham - when i think of why he is my hero - i don't practice triplets with my foot...what i do do is try to capture the ferocious joy that comes across in his drumming. i think, how would bonzo approach this intro? how does he think of snare placement? how would he unstaighten this groove tastefully?etc....
