Karen was as great an artist as anyone.
It was in interview with comedian Billy Connelly, who was a friend of his. When Billy asked how he felt being one of the world's greatest drummers and he dismissed that immediately, and pretty much the rest of the interview for that matter. He loved Moon, Roach, Krupa, Cozy Powell, and Bev Bevan was a friend who's playing he respected.stinkingbadges! said:I'll go with he was either drinking, drunk or hungover or all three. Seems I recall him being on some TV or radio show where the host called him the greatest drummer etc.etc. and Bonham took exception to that and was very humble.
I liked em both. Sad they are no longer with us.
Hey Scott, I'm pretty sure any regular to this forum is well aware of the value of your contributions and the intent of your posts.Scott K Fish said:Just for the record: As I say in the opening of my post, John Bonham's remarks made me laugh because he came across as thin-skinned. It was not my intent to set him up so others could pig pile him. I know threads often take on lives of their own. But as someone mentions in this thread: alcoholism is a disease. Bonham's death, no matter how you slice it, was tragic. I wonder how many hangers-on were with him, egging him on to have one more shot the night he died. And I wonder how many friends were on hand trying to get him to stop.
Finally, neither John nor Karen are here to defend themselves. I always see that as reason enough to make valid points, but to also respect the people involved. Both players left strong musical legacies.
