John Bonham was one of the greatest drummers of all time. After years and years of success with Led, he drank himself to bottom of a bottle and an estimated 40 shots of vodka took his life. He was 32. After his death the band couldn't go on without their dear Bonzo so they Dear Johned the press and released this statement. "We wish it to be known that the loss of our dear friend and the deep respect we have for his family, together with the sense of undivided harmony felt by ourselves and our manager, have led us to decide that we could not continue as we were." - Led Zeppelin
Even though they are touring again and making rent, I raise my glass. John will continue to be missed. He played like Moby Dick, but he lived like Ahab.
