#JohnBonham was born on this day in 1948. #LedZeppelin’s legendary drummer died young, at the age of 32, on September 25th, 1980. On the very first cut of the very first Led Zeppelin LP, John Bonham changed rock drumming forever. Years later, #JimmyPage was still amused by the disorienting impact that “Good Times Bad Times,” with its jaw-dropping bass-drum hiccups, had on listeners: “Everyone was laying bets that Bonzo was using two bass drums, but he only had one.” We recently named John as the greatest drummer of all time.
