John Bonham would have turned 66 years old on Saturday, born on May 31, 1948 in Worcestershire, England.
It’s beyond dispute that Bonham was in a league all his own when it came to his skill at drumming.
Rolling Stone readers named him the “best drummer of all time” in 2011, and there is poll after poll naming him at the top of the rock drumming world.
Of course, the best and highest compliment anyone can get is from their colleagues, and there’s no shortage of admiration from his fellow drummers.
“John Bonham played the drums like someone who didn’t know what was going to happen next—like he was teetering on the edge of a cliff. No one has come close to that since, and I don’t think anybody ever will. I think he will forever be the greatest drummer of all time.” ~Dave Grohl
“To me, hands down, John Bonham was the best rock drummer ever. The style and the sound was so identifiable to one person. Any drum set that he would play, it sounded like him.” ~Chad Smith
