Hal Leonard

THE detailed John Bonham biography

John Henry "Bonzo" Bonham was the godfather of hard rock drumming - and he remains an idol to legions of Led Zeppelin and heavy metal fans worldwide. Although Bonham had to be courted away from more lucrative offers, he joined the newly formed band in 1968, helping guitarist Jimmy Page and vocalist Robert Plant create such famous songs as "Stairway to Heaven" and "Kashmir" until his sudden death in 1980 at the age of 32. John Bonham's unmistakable drum patterns are among the most emulated and sampled by today's rock drummers. This book, John Bonham: A Thunder on Drums is the first biography focusing on Bonham, providing a detailed track-by-track analysis of his greatest recordings, 45 color photos, and the most detailed and accurate inventory ever of Bonham's drum kits and percussion equipment.

Comments about Hal Leonard John Bonham: A Thunder of Drums Book:

John Henry Bonham: if you happen to look this up in the dictionary.....well, you know what? you're not going to find anything because it's not in the dictionary.(though it should be)... but if it was, the definition next to his name would .read... "GREATEST DRUMMER...EVER."

Not Endorsed

Comments about Hal Leonard John Bonham: A Thunder of Drums Book:

I say have used because I burned it. When first seeing this book it looks to be a good buy but looks can be misleading. First off, John Bonhom never agreed to having this book published and when his family found out about this book a lawsuit was filed. This book barely has accurate noting. "The Best of Led Zeplin Drums" is a much better book with only about 4 mistakes. If you want to learn from the drumming legend John Bonhom this is not the book to do so.
