Sept 25th 1980, John Bonham, drummer with Led Zeppelin, died aged 32 after a heavy drinking session. ‘Bonzo’ was found dead at guitarists Jimmy Page's house of what was described as asphyxiation, after inhaling his own vomit after excessive vodka consumption, (40 shots in 4 hours). During live sets his drum solo, ‘Moby Dick,’ would often last for half an hour and regularly featured his use of his bare hands.

I love Led Zeppelin but I can't really symphathise with someone who died as a result of 'over drinking'. R.I.P nevertheless.

Waste of talent. Why do talented people always die young?

Tell him to put some grease on that kick pedal, and maybe I will listen to some Zeppelin.

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

It sounds good with the squeak.

I agree

It was a playful jab, that I am sure Bonham fans will appreciate.

This. It was self induced.

But, he was an incredible drummer and Led Zeppelin are amazing. Such a waste.

RIP John.
I lost my virginity a year ago today.
I am honored to share it with the anniversary of your death because you would have wanted me to have sex with a woman I didn't love
