    September 25 1980, Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham died.

    All you celebrating your 21st birthday today raise a toast to him and everybody else, keep raising your toasts. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]


    John Bonham on drums was/is the equivalent to Eddie Van Halen on guitars.
    Both are arguably the best ever at their craft. (sorry Alex).

    I remember walking to elementary school hearing about it on a brand new am/fm walkman. I was 10. I think even then, at such a young age, I knew what a loss the music world suffered.

    Thanks Eddymon for reminding us.

    Here's to you Bonzo!

    Bonzo is definitely the best drummer ever. What a huge loss. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

    Bonzo rocked!

    Without a doubt one of the, if not THE greatest rock drummer of all time.

    Another late great in that section is Cozy Powell. Shame he did too early as well. [img]smilies/cry.gif[/img]
