I read the Rolling Stone article, but something did not add up. I have always been a big fan of John "Bonzo" Bonham who is my favorite drummer ever. The Rolling Stone article said Robert Plant discovered Bonzo dead (the next morning) after he puked on his own vomit. NOT SO....I heard that Bonham was driven to some place by a mysterious friend of his and covered with a blanket and left to "sleep it off" in his car until the next morning....the puking part was correct but he was not found dead by Robert Plant. :confused:

i read in two different biographies that JPJ and someone else just left him sleeping in a bed and that JPJ or the other guy found him dead. it was after a big party, and i don't think plant was too much into the parties by that time.

one sec let me grab my guitar world magazine with the article right in it...heres what happened On the day of september 24th 1980 bonzo stopped at a pub before rehearsal downing four quadruple vodka and oranges and quaffed a couple of ham rolls...breakfast he called it. He continued drinking at practice until he was too drunk to play, He was then half carried-half dragged and placed on a sofa where he spend the night and they figured bonzo would just sleep it off. The Next morning when John Paul Jones and Robert Plants Assistrant, Benje LeFevre both failed to rouse him. They realized with mouting horror that John Bonham was dead.

RIP JOHN BOHAM :boohoo: :boohoo: :boohoo:

That is the way Bon Scott went out I think.
