Today is the anniversary of the death of Led Zeppelin's drummer John Bonham
in 1980.

He died at the ripe old age of 32 after a night of partying and filling himself
up with booze. I don't recall if drugs were involved in hastening his demise.

I still consider him to be the Godfather of rock drumming. An unmitigated
loss indeed. No one -- and I mean no-one -- even came close to having his
skills as a drummer.

I hope he found that "Stairway To Heaven" a long time ago.
