25 years ago today, John Bonham, the extremely talented drummer of Led Zeppelin died. He was a great drummer, and just a general all around good musician, no matter how he passed.

The good die young.




So, whats your favorite Zeppelin song?

'Immigrant Song' is good stuff for blasting down a gravel road in a topless Jeep.

RIP Bonzo.

Favorite song would have to be the live version of "Since I've been Loving You".

They're all good. Do I have to choose one?
Link Posted: 9/25/2005 1:24:06 PM EDT
There's only one Zep tune I don't like, and it's Carouselambra. Hell, I even like Hot Dog.

Zeppelin is easily my favorite band. The first album is my favorite, by far. Spooky, hard blues does it for me every time. "How Many More Times" as performed on the Danish TV Special ranks up there pretty high. It's hard to choose one favorite.

yep....40 vodka's in 2hrs will do that to ya. He was a kick ass drummer for sure. Amazeing to watch him change up when jimmy would take off on one of his riffs....live

Which is my favorite?

Most of them, depending on mood.

I got to hang with Jimmy Page in 1991 for a couple of days. He was in Reno and came into the club I was managing. He was kind of a jerk, but he could afford to be. A few nights later, he showed up at another club I was playing at with my band. We had "Heartbreaker/Living - Loving maid" in the set and asked if he would like to sit in. He declined, but liked the show. Pretty cool.

I still love the movie "The Song Remains the Same." Nothing like seeing it on 70mm widescreen.
Link Posted: 9/25/2005 2:01:39 PM EDT
Yeah, too bad. They had come out of a really dark time intact, during the "Presence" album. Robert Plant's back was broken from a car accident and his son died, Jimmy Page was a full blown smack addict, and everyone was pretty much down. But they came through it, didn't break up the band. They would have kept on if Bonham hadn't died.

He drowned in his vomit from drunking, for pete's sake. He's an idiot with some talent one of which was definitely not being of high IQ.

I am a drummer.
My main influence as a drummer is John Bonham.
I met his son Jason twice.
Bonham had a premonition of his own death.
He was a nervous wreck the few days before he died.
He made his son Jason promise to look after his mother and sister the day before he died.
Jason thought it strange, but he shrugged it off.
He was drinking almost constantly the day he died.
He was too drunk for rehearsal, he couldn't play so Jimmy Page took him to a room to sleep it off.
Bonham died by inhaling his vomit because he was laid on a bed face up
by Jimmy Page.
He was found dead the next day by John Paul Jones, the bassist of Led Zeppelin.
This was told to me by Jason himself.

Well, at least he didn't choke on someone else's vomit like Eric "Stumpy Joe" Childs of Spinal Tap did.

I feel bad that he died, and I feel bad for his family and friends, but if you have a feeling you are going to die, drinking a massive amount of alcohol probably isn't the best thing to do.

It is "weird" that rock stars continue to kill themselves with drugs and booze...it must be such a hard life with all that money and all those women...

The thing is, no one gives a shit what he died of. It's a troll comment.



I'd have a lot more respect for the guy if he was killed sober in a car wreck or something as opposed to drowning in his own drunken vomit.
