He never has sung along on Battle of evermore (It was JPJ in 1977 doing the sandy denny part), he has sung along on tangerine (just as a harmony vocal)...I dont think there is anything else...

If It was you that asked about his death, it was september 25th 1980, and just look at his article in wikipedia for the details it was to to inhalation of vomit after 48 shots of vodka...

He used 16,18,20 giant and later 2002 medium crashes.I think he never used china.

I only ever see two crashes on Bonhams kit. And judging by... well, everything, it's a 16" and an 18" 2oo2, at least on the later recordings.

Bonzo did sing sometimes i can remember a few..... the backup for bron-y-aur stomp, the ocean, and in his biography written by his brother mick, theres a picture of him playing guitar and singing with max middleton, ronnie lane, keith moon (amazing i know) ray harper and jimmy page at the rainbow. also according to the bio he sang lead for "Hey Joe" when he was with Reg Jones and the band "Way of Life" which was a few years before zeppelin even formed

Here's a question: A Zep song is proposed. What song is most likely to cause apprehensiveness?
Or for this matter, what drummer might cause you the most apprehensiveness?
Are there those of you out there who can nail any drummer proposed?

Thanks.

Welllllllll most people are keeping it to 5 songs or so so I figured I'd do the same. And with Fool in the Rain, it's really really good and I totally think Bonzo is the man, but I prefer Purdie or Porcaro playing that halftime shuffle -- sorry!

EDIT: 10 minutes later and I realize that "Fool in the Rain" is stuck in my head..

Ok I just got my vintage blue/olive badge supraphonic snare in the mail today. (6.5X14). I want that classic Bonham sound. I watched the Jeff Ocheltree video on how tune buts its very vague. I know he said remo emperor coated on the top and ambassador on bottom (is the ambassador clear or coated on the bottom side?) Bonham also used a 42 strand system which I can buy from gibralter. Anything else I need to know about tuning. I think the resonant head is cranked wayyy up and the batter is also cranked but not as high. Will this get me the sound im looking for?

First off you want to use a Coated Emperor on the batter side, on the bottom use a clear Ambassador or a clear Diplomat. I am pretty sure Bonzo used clear for the bottom, I have never heard of anyone using anything else. The bottom head should be cranked up significantly higher then the top. The top head should be cranked up high but not to the point of choking the sound. You want the snares to be loose so that you can hear the sensitivity of the snares. You are looking for a nice snarey sound. Sometimes I use a drum dial and to give you an idea my snare batter side is at 90. The bottom is at 100 maybe a little more. You want to make sure you have good seperation between the bottom head and the batter side. Also the way you strike the drum will have an effect on the sound. I would say about 98% of the time Bonzo would strike the snare using a rim shot for power. I hope this helps, enjoy that Supraphonic they are the best!

Thanks for the help pcmckay! I have a clear ambassador on the bottom (it came with it) and a pretty beat up coated emperor on the batter side (will be replaced tomorrow). I cranked up the bottom and put the batter side cranked but not as much. So far thats correct. And I actually do hit the snare like a rim shot alot. So thats correct. The sound I get out of it is soooo nice and just to think the head on it is a piece of crap! Cant wait to get a new emeperor coated on there tomorrow. I will prob also pick up a 42 strand snare system and yes I keep my snare fairly loose to get that sensativity.

By the way how much usually does a drum dial cost?
