But Tommy Lee was a contemporary of John Bonham. Mike Byrne is a contemporary of Jimmy Chamberlain.
oh for fuck's sake, kreatorkind, no it doesn't. I see you skipped over highlighting "of the same age," "current," "of the present."

You don't understand what being a contemporary of someone means.

Take for example the Shelley/Keats example that was used. Shelley and Keats knew each other, they ran in the same circles. They lived and produced work during the exact same time period. They were both Romantic poets.
