“John Bonham is the greatest rock drummer of all time. Bonham played directly from the heart. His drumming was by no means perfect, but when he hit a groove it was so deep it was like a heartbeat. He had this manic sense of cacophany, but he also had the ultimate feel. he could swing, he could get on top, or he could pull back."  Dave Grohl

On this day in 1980 John Bonham died at the age of 32.

We miss you Bonzo…

Interviewer: “He has been one of the most copied rock drummers. Are there any drummers out there that you feel have come close to his style?”

John Paul Jones: “No. Not that I know.”

Happy Birthday to the incomparable John Bonham. There will never be another like you.
