Bonzo's Birthday!

These drums are beating in rock'n'roll heaven today for John Bonham's 67th birthday. This is one of my favorite photographs in my book, Everybody I Shot Is Dead. No sticks required.

 
 

JOHN BONHAM
5/31/48 - 9/25/80

The Moby Dick drum solo (in three parts here) is crazy. I don't know how he could pull this off night after night. John Henry Bonham was an anomaly. I wish he was here.
