Ask any musician who the greatest rock drummer of all time is, and the chances are pretty good you’re going to get a decent amount of replies naming Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham as one of the greatest.

Pounding the skins with the rockers from 1968 until his untimely death in 1980, which heralded the dissolution of the band, John Bonham was known for a number of things, including his rockstar attitude, and his profiency behind the kit.

With John Bonham’s son, Jason Bonham, touching down in Australia this week to bring fans his critically-acclaimed Led Zeppelin Evening, we’ve decided to take a look back at some of the finest moments from the illustrious career of his late father.
