Seen this one before. A brilliant mash-up.

Listening to John Bonham playing along to The Beatles, it reminds me of the John Bonham version of Beware My Love on the new Wings At The Speed Of Sound deluxe. He totally transforms that song with his roll and swing, it's such a shame that the rest of the backing track never progresses beyond the level of a basic demo/runthrough, and Macca's vocals on it are surprisingly subdued (compared to the rip-roaring performance on the final mix).

I recently heard this one, and I have to admit to being........underwhelmed. I saw the title and who played drums on it, but came away thinking that Bonham must have not gotten very much time to run thru the song. I like the drums on the original just fine, but I figured Bonham would just THUNDER it, in a good way, but I felt his version was just pretty ok. I think with a few more run-throughs, they might have had something.

I can understand that view too, and I too think the drumming is superb on the original. One thing about Bonham though, it's not just about him thundering his way through, he had a way of shuffling and a bit of a swag amongst it, and I think he brings it to the table here. But yeah, if only they had a few more run-throughs.. if only the band were as strident as they were on the final recorded version.

Quite right there, too.....I have always admired John Bonham's ability to rock and swing. He had a unique grasp, as a ROCK drummer, for other styles. His adaptation of the Purdie shuffle on "Fool In the rain" is sublime:

That sounded amazing. A bit disappointing to read the YouTube comments though, arguing over whether it's a triplet rhythm or a 4/4 beat. The usual name-calling.

Yes has always bored me, but that was one of the best Btl covers I've seen.  It really brings out how majestic that song is.

I'm not sure if you folks know how to get around those things on Youtube..or...other sites..but...I put an extension on Chrome called Hola Better Internet. With it you can change what part of the world the site thinks you are from. So in your case Kyle...just change the flag in the top right corner to another country and away you go. It's also great for watching BBC content...just change to a Union Jack and then watch iplayer off the BBC site. It's a nice way to watch Top Gear the day after it airs in the UK. :)

Ron Sexsmith has been doing a ton of covers sitting in his kitchen. All sorts of stuff. Here's his take on Here Comes The Sun.

And yeah, he does always look like he just woke up. :)
