Led Zeppelin History – Oct 10

Today in 1980 Zeppelin drummer John Bonham’s funeral was held at St. Michael Churchyard in Rushock, Worcestershire, and was attended by about 250 mourners that included family, friends, and his band mates. Tributes came from Paul McCartney, Carmine Appice, Phil Collins, Cozy Powell, and Carl Palmer. “I do very much remember that day, and I don’t think any of us have ever really dealt with his loss,” said sister Deborah Bonham. “I think we just live with it. We were a close family and when something like that happens, you try to make some sense of it but you just can’t. What else can you do other than just live with it? So that’s what we do.”
