(Book). 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. His unmistakable drum patterns are among the most emulated and sampled by today's rock drummers. This book 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.… (more)

Anything written by Chris Welch is going to be good. Back in the day, as a rock journalist for Melody Maker, he was on the scene as Zeppelin rose to fame. His books often pull directly from articles he wrote and interviews he personally had with the band members. “John Bonham: A Thunder of Drums” by Chris Welch is no exception, and the book culminates with a visit and lengthy chat with Bonzo at his farm. Welch’s biography of Peter Grant is also excellent. ( )
