This website is a tribute to the most influential rock and roll drummer of all times:




 
This site was created for Bonham's fans and is a collection of videos, photos and information about his life on and off the stage. He has been an inspiration to drummers for over fourty years now because of the way he brought the music to life and will continue to do so for many generations yet to come!! His unique style and approach to drumming caught the world by surprise and changed the sound of hard rock like no other drummer has ever done in the history of rock and roll!

Bonzo's Corvette cartoon was created for Bonzo Bros. Drums by an extremely talented artist, Christopher Kuster, of www.paintbyteeth.com who drew it with his teeth!! He's a disabled artist who literally has to hold the pencils and brushes with his teeth to draw them!! His specialty is doing custom "CAR-toons" of your car from your photo. Check out more of his amazing artwork on Facebook!! Have you had your car... TooN'D?!

"I've always liked drums to be bright and powerful. I've never used cymbals much. I use them to crash into a solo and out of it, but basically I prefer the actual drum sound."

"I've always been obsessed with drums. They fascinate me. Any other instrument - nothing. I play acoustic guitar a bit. But it's always been drums first and foremost. I don't reckon on this Jack-of-all-trades thing. I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts."

"Brushes...?? Nah... Hit 'em as hard as you can!!"
