Did you realise that Bonham spelt backwards comes out like this:

MAHNOB

In fact it gets better:
JOHN BONHAM becomes:

NHOJ MAHNOB plays a solo in MOBY DICK.


P.S.[ Do you think Troll Herding will ever become an Olympic sport? ]

Pocket full of Pennies & Watso; where do you guys actually come from? Who uses Jordison and "hip" in the same context? Who uses the term "hip" anymore period? Although I think Barker and Jordinson are decent, they are consistently listed in the top 5 of over-rated drummers polls (for what that's worth). On the other hand, if you aren't familiar with the name "Bonzo," you don't really "know" drums. Uninspired fills? Bonham? Another testament to your ignorance. Learn from your predecessors, you might (doubtful) advance to the big show. Stewart Copeland, "I don't use the double bass pedal a lot just for the occasional flash and effect but there is one particular thing that it can do; it works like a paradiddle: If you've landed on your foot but you need to get back up to your snare drum, but you need two beats to get your there, you can do go, 'ba-da-bahh!' It's ergonomics. "Now, John Bonham would have just done that with one foot because he was John Bonham. Because he was... the mountain."

But hey, thanks for playing. Reading that rant was even more fun than my time spent with Watso. :-)

Funny? I'm easily the most serious and focused poster here. Travis Barker is a much more solid player than "sloppy bonzo". Known far and wide for his sloppy playing.

Just enough beer to last for that whole winter is all I need. Tents are for Bonham loving wimps, and a BBQ? Real men eat raw, while the animal is still alive.

I thought real men ate it whole? You're obviously not a real man.

In any case, I vote you don't change it to Sherlock.

Don't worry. Next time we'll get one of those flashing "Laughter and Applause" signs they use for the studio audience, so you'll know when to giggle. :-)

Sherlock and Watson decide to go on a camping trip outside London, in the Kent orchards.

Looking up at the stars, Sherlock say to Watson:

'So, what does the sky tell you?'

'Well, I see we are expecting good weather tomorrow, that the wind is moving in a South-Easterly direction and that we are facing South because I can see the planet Saturn. We might do well to wrap up warm tonight because the lack of cloud cover tells me it's going to be cold.'

'What about you Sherlock, what do you see?'

'That we've forgotten our sodding tent'.

Hey Bonham fans! I found this picture of John from 1980 and I couldn't figure out what one of the cymbals he was using was, the ride is his usual 2oo2 24 inch and the hi-hats are the 2oo2 25 sound edge, he also has his normal 2oo2 18 crash/medium and even a 16 crash/medium on his left. The crash to his right looks very big almost maybe a 22 inch on the far left? What do you guys think it is?

Yeah, I thought that but I think that might be the one next to it. But I don't know he could be using two of them.

It's actually a "black label" Paiste FO602 20" medium ride which he used as a crash it's in Paiste Profiles 2&listed on his Paiste agreement.

John Bonham is my favorite drummer of all time, he was ahead of his time, his signature triplets, sound and style are something special and unique. He had an amazing technique! To bad he passed away to early. He is my main drumming influence. P.S. This is my first post greetings! ✌️😎
