Default Could Jimmy replace Bonham if Led Zep were to do a tour in 2013?

I think so.

I saw Robert Plant a year ago or something, and holy shit I have never seen so much botox in one night. The crowd was terrifying. But yeah Jimmy would completely outshine everyone.

Have you guys seen "Celebration Day?" As a casual fan, with only the exception of a tired version of Dazed And Confused, it's an amazing set.

Sure he could, but Jimmy is a very different player from Bonham. Jimmy is a busier player and has always had a jazzy feel and a good sense of dynamics. Whereas Bonham was more of a full-on heavy groove drummer. I think Dave Grohl would be more cut out for playing Zeppelin in a similar style to that of Bonham.

You're crazy. Have a look at the Celebration Day DVD. The guy does the songs justice.

he was passable in 2007 but I still would have taken michael lee (from the P&P tours)

if you go back and watch the 88 and 95 reunion footage he plays like shit, I haven't seen anything that would make me not consider the 07 show a fluke on his part

best case scenario if this were to happy is Zak Starkey on drums.

I think you need to watch more video of Bonham, there is tons of little subtle jazz stuff going on in his playing.

i think Jimmy could totally sit in with zeppelin. The drums were a major presence in both bands' musical approach and a major reason why both of these bands are my favorite bands. The members of Led Zeppelin can still rock, and I think Jimmy could totally contribute the "hammer of the Gods"
