On September 25, 1980, drummers and rock music lovers around the world were shocked to hear the news that John(Bonzo)Bonham of Led Zeppelin had died. He was found dead in his bed after a drinking binge. Bonzo was a unique one of a kind drummer. Many a drummer around the world would just sit there and wonder how John could do the things he did with that drum kit.

This is a great video of John and Robert Plant being interviewed in the early moments of the bands success. I love how the newsman refers to them as THE Led Zeppelin.
