Default Re: Bonham on Bonham - a new book is coming.

i've always thought they should write a script about john, with zep in the background...his tragedy combined with his huge personality and obviously awesome drumming would make a highly entertaining and moving screenplay. but who would they get to act as bonzo?

Will definitely get this. Bogey cover though.....they should have gone with something a bit more 'bonham-ish'.

If I was to write a script about a dead member of one of the world's biggest rock and roll bands ever, I would probably want the blessing of the three remaining member's, and possibly want them involved. Honestly, by the way Jimmy, Jonesy, and Robert address the issue of John Bonham, it seems to be an incredibly sensitive subject. Personally, by the way the media treated John Bonham, his family, and the band when he died, I don't think there is the slightest chance there will ever be a movie based on John Bonham's life. I don't think the three of them would ever approve of such a movie, but not like it's thier choice, anyways, but if there is a right way to write a movie about him, it would have to involve at least Jimmy, but I don't think that would ever happen.

IMO...

Default A treat for John Bonham fans

June 21st, 1977 is generally considered by Led Zeppelin fanatics and bootleg collectors as one of Led Zeppelin's all time best live performances. 1977 is generally known among LZ heavyweights as a very bland year. The band was just plain terrible [compared to earlier years, but no one knew that back then I would imagine]. John Paul Jones was the steady man, like always. Bonzo had his decent nights, but nothing compared to 1973 and before. Jimmy Page was a Heroin junkie, and Robert Plant basically just lost his voice. Now and again, the band would just....click, for lack of a better word. This night, in particular, is an absolute monster. Jimmy Page owns the Los Angelas Forum, Robert Plant sounds like 1972, and most, if not all LZ fans will declare this night Bonzo's greatest performance. What can I say about JPJ? He's the man.

Here is the opening number for direct download: The Song Remains the Same

Bonzo absolutely destroys this song into the ground. He comes out full blast, swinging for the fences. It's probably his single greatest live performance. It's like he was transformed back to 1968, when he had endless energy, and morphed into 1973, adding on the thunderous power. Too bad it was for only one night.

It sure was, but I didn't say anything otherwise. 1973 was infinitely better.

Wow! That was was my first listen to bootleg Zep and I'm hooked. I've heard that Page has gone around aquiring all the bootlegs he comes across. What is he gonna do with em? Destroy them or release them? Anyway, thanks for the song!

I downloaded it and as usual a great “Rock and Roll” song played by a great band. In my opinion the only difference that existed in Zep 73 and Zep 77 is that in 77 they were all 4 years older, wiser and in my opinion 4 years better for having given me the last 4 years of rocking pleasure. Brother, when it comes to Zep there is no Good Times, Bad Times and for all the years of performances they shared with us all I can say is “Thank You” Led Zeppelin.

Most of the 1973 soundboards were literally stolen from Jimmy Page's vault in his house by a disgruntled maid. He does collect bootlegs. This track can be heard on the DVD. I forget where, but it's on one of the menus. I forgot, this show, and recording is famous because of the taper. Mike "the Mike" Millard. His tapes sound better than official releases, IMO.

Thanks for the treat, I enjoyed every second. In the beginning that is some of the fastest single bass drum work I have ever heard If you didn't catch it listen to it again it'll be worth it.

Just wait until the 45 seconds is over, and a download link appears, right where the 45 second countdown timer is.

However, megaupload places an ad in that part of the screen so you can't see the timeout finish. Click on the [x] in the upper right corner to close that ad and behind it the timeout counter is there... and it will switch to "download" after the 45 seconds.

-I know Nutha compiled a list of Zep songs with tricky drum parts, and I have to add "In my time of Dying" to that. It's amazing how Bonham and Jones stay so tight through the entire thing.
-Personally, I prefer Bonzo's Montreaux over Moby Dick, although I have no idea if it was recorded in one take (BTW, is he playing a steel drum as well?)
-I've always wondered about one of the versions of "How Many More Times" on the DVD (it's in black and white and on a TV show of some kind). About 2/3rds into the song they all pause, camera closes up on Bonzo who's looking pretty motionless, and you hear what sounds like machine gun fire. I've gone back and watched it many times and can't figure out if the infamous right foot is somehow involved. Anyone with insight to this?

in my time of dying is very cool.
montreaux
the basic track as far as i know was recorded in one take. then there were some overdubs of bonham playing on his famous tipmanis. jimi page then took the overdubs and messed with them electronically until they sound like steel pans. genius

I personally think In My Time of Dying is Bonzo's greatest work.

Watch Jimmy Page's right hand during the "machine gun fire". ;)

To my knowledge, Bonzo was very protective of his snare for some reason. I guess he didn't want anyone stealing his tuning secrets or something.

I have no idea the answer to your question. Sorry.
