If you have not seen this before then it is well worth a watch.

At the tail end of last year there was a tribute to Led Zep at the Kennedy Centre in the US. This is the most perfect piece of music I have ever heard, and it makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck every time I watch it.

The guy on drums is Jason Bonham, the son of John

2 questions.
1. Who is John Bonham?
2. Who are the pensioners they kept showing in the audience ?

I really don't know if you are serious or being sarcastic...lol :problem:

But just in case,

The pensioners are Led Zeppelin, John Paul Jones, Robert Plant and Jimmi Page.

John Bonham was their drummer who died in 1980.

One of his trade marks was a bowler hat which he often wore, hence the choir wearing them.

No I didn't know, Led Zeppelin not my sort of thing. I'd heard of Stairway to Heaven but if you asked me who did it I wouldn't of had a clue.

How did the drummer die? Is he the one that tried to land his plane on the tour bus.

John Bonham choked on his own vomit, after starting the day with 4 quadruple vodkas and a ham roll for breakfast, and then drinking heavily all day during rehearsals for an upcoming tour.
He was found dead in bed the next afternoon, the coroner estimated he had drunk 40 shots of vodka in the 24hrs before his death.

Such a sad waste.

Why do all the best drink them self to death :-\

So who tried to land a plane on a tour bus? They all sound crazy to me maybe it's fame getting the better of them. Anyway i decided to listen to some Led Zeppelin, although I can't say it's my kind of music I did enjoy listening.
