    If I remember that well Mr. John Henry Bonham, also known as Jack Bonham, was a carpenter who run the family business. John (Bonzo) worked with his dad while playing the drums for some local bands in Hunt End (Redditch/Worcestershire) at the age of 16 after he left school.

    My ballsack can play better guitar than Vic. Walter White Jr can play guitar better than him while doing push-ups.

    I think if Jason played like Alex, people would say, "Well, he's sure not his dad!" People equate John Bonham with stomping elephant drums, so I'm sure Jason feels like he's got to pulverize the kit to placate the naysayers.

    I think also there was a AVH/Bonzo meeting that didn't go well, if I recall. I'm pretty sure Jason approached the AVH stuff thinking it's going to be easy. At the beginning he wouldn't even play it like Al, he made changes. I think now it's a bit better.

    That was at the Whisky in 78 IIRC. Bonzo was drunk and acted like an asshole to Al, as he was known to be like when he was hammered.

    Funny, Alex was every bit as heavy a hitter back in the day:

    In 78, Bonzo was a legend and Al was a newbie, so I imagine they were not meeting on equal footing.

    Which makes it worse for Bonham. AVH looked up to him, and in turn Bonzo reportedly acted like a drunk asshole. Not a good look.
