Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham is generally regarded as one of the most important and influential rock drummers of his generation, if not all time. The legendary musician died on Sept. 25, 1980, and today -- Oct. 10 -- marks the 33rd anniversary of his funeral service.
On Aug. 12, 1968, in a small space on Gerrard Street in the west end of London, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham played together for the very first time. The first song the band -- which would later be named Led Zeppelin -- tore into was 'The Train Kept A-Rollin',' which was a fixture in Page's previous band, the Yardbirds.
It's been 40 years since Led Zeppelin had more than $200,000 in cash stolen from a safety-deposit box at their New York City hotel. Hardly a crippling loss, seeing as it came near the end of a tour that grossed more than $4 million. But it was almost a sign that the legendary group's career had peaked and more troubles were on the way.
Imagine covering one of the most well known songs of all time in front of the legendary band that created it...scratch that, imagine playing "Stairway to Heaven" in front of the three remaining members of Led Zeppelin? That's what Nancy and Ann Wilson of Heart tackled at the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony last December. How did they do? They brought Robert Plant to tears. Umm yeah. Check it out:
