In memoriam: John Bonham (1948–1980)

35 years ago today John Bonham was found dead at Jimmy Page's house. The Led Zeppelin drummer was only 32. He had suffocated on his own vomit after downing 40 shots of wodka within 24 hours. Bonham was one of rock greatest drummers, His skills and dexterity - especially his fast right foot - have inspired (and frustrated) countless fellow musicians.

Watch his signature Moby Dick solo, live @ The Royal Albert Hall in London - 1971/01/09. It was released on the Led Zeppelin DVD.
