John Bonham (1948-1980)
.
In the first thirty seconds of the first track of the first Led Zeppelin album, John Bonham announces himself as an absolute master, with visionary ideas, a heavy groove, and a supreme right foot that’s able to channel a jazz drummer’s dexterity with the heft of a rocker. And it was only upward from there. Through his sparkling, highly influential career with the mighty Zep, Bonham came armed with fitting concepts for every song, giving each piece its signature ornamentation with playing that felt spontaneous and natural, seemingly just flowing out of him. And in concert, that flow reached tsunami levels, as Bonzo tossed away the thoughtful restraint that made his studio work so brilliant and let his ferocious chops rule unchecked, in dramatic high-wire improvisations with guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist John Paul Jones, and singer Robert Plant, and in rollicking “Moby Dick” solos that sometimes flirted with the thirty minute mark.
.
Bonham died young, at age thirty-two, bringing a sudden halt to one of the hottest acts in rock history, and the fact that he seldom did interviews has only fueled his mystique in the decades since. What we do have of the man, though, is a ton of precious music. Zeppelin’s eight proper studio albums show a highly dynamic, very diverse drummer, defining for the ages streamlined backbeats (“Black Dog,” “Kashmir”); fire-breathing, kick-throbbing rockers (“The Wanton Song,” “Achilles Last Stand”); supercharged slow blues (“Since I’ve Been Loving You,” “Tea for One”); and light-and-shade acoustic-plus numbers (“Ramble On,” “Tangerine”). And the Song Remains the Same film and two-disc Led Zeppelin DVD allow those who never saw the band to join Bonham on his swashbuckling onstage adventures; from the fearsome, sinewy presence of the early days to the stocky, bowler-hatted English rocker of 1979, Bonzo is a drummer’s treasure.

Week 3 - Back to Basics. Link to video #diary in bio. Visited the #physio & given the ok to do upto 40 minutes pad work!
Pic. 2 - 2nd injury, #malletfinger on left hand making practice difficult but doable at low tempo.
Pic. 3 - I play #matchgrip elbows ‘in’ usually, at the minute I can’t get my elbow ‘in’ on recovering arm, but I’m told that will come!
Pic. 4 - Going #backtobasics hardcore #sticking & #pad work for me over the coming weeks & no one finer that #buddyrich for inspiration, also using the fantastic @drumeoofficial. At the minute I’m managing 30-40 minutes with no increase in pain, keeping tempos low as I want to avoid tensing the upper arm as much as possible.
Mentally it’s great to have some focus after the last few weeks & even at this early stage I’m seeing progress daily #staypositive #drumming #practice #humerus #recovery #music #paradiddle #rudiments 🥁

Cascading, omnipotent, Jesus rays shining down on my chops. I also don't play traditional grip so that's probably blasphemy. #drums #snaredrum #marchingsnare

Montare la batteria non è una cosa da sottovalutare! Il grande Dave Weckl me l’ha mostrato in una sua clinic! Oggi ve lo voglio spiegare!😁
