1. I play this song for my drum students

when I am showing them how to oil their kick drum pedals. Once they hear it they get a light bulb moment and once youíve heard it you canít unhear it.

Still a kick-ass track though, no doubt about it. Thanks.

2. Glad to hear you're making good use of it

 

Iím a non-drummer drummer.

I definitely would have been a good drummer had I pursued it. Iím always ďdrummingĒ on my legs or a table, etc.

I had an opportunity to actually play one song with a band many years ago. When we we finished, the real drummer said, ďYouíve never played drums or taken lessons or anything before?Ē I told him, ďNo.Ē He was astounded at how good I was for a guy who had never sat behind a set of drums. I wasnít surprised at all. I knew I could keep a beat, and knew what to do with my feet even though I had never had any kind of instruction.

One of the highlights of my life. I loved it. Loved it! I wouldnít have been a Keith Moon or Ginger Baker, but I truly believe I would have been a more than competent professional drummer had I pursued it.

And thatís my one and only drummer story.

3. Oh, I hope you get a chance to have a drum kit of your own someday!

And that you have patient neighbors. Itís one of lifeís greatest pleasures and I am glad you got to experience it at least once.

Thanks again for posting that song, I didnít mean to sound like I was slagging it. Iím a HUGE Bonham fan and can never pass up a chance to hear him again.

4. Bite your tongue brother!

The squeaky kick drum pedal is one of the things that makes this my favorite Zep tunes! Oh, you cut me deep man, cut me deep!
