A few years later I owned dozens of Zep vinyl bootlegs and studied them incessantly: realizing no Led Zeppelin concert was musically, artistically the same. Getting back to John Bonham, my point is that if he had lived past 1980 and Led Zeppelin had continued to record the music they would have produced would most likely have followed the same trajectory as other bands that crossed over into the 1980's. What are you smokin?As a drummer in the 60/70s played Zeppelin and Bonham was a great drummer. All in all it spelled the beginning of the end for Randy Bachman and the band he had founded. Whatever Happened To… Tal Bachman? On the first Shadowplay [my band along with my drummer / bass player Peter Odd] album The Camp Of The Saints [1988] we did a song ala Moby Dick named Bonzo's Buddy Neil so Peter could show-off his influences. I never heard from him since. Just listen to what Steve Winwood was doing in 1982 vs 1972. And then that was it. When the feminists showed up, Christians began pretending I Corinthians 14: 34-35, and Ephesians 5: 23-24 no longer existed. Bachman, who was well on his way to becoming a church leader before his unpleasant epiphany about a year ago, says he never set out to refute the religion that had formed his entire life. Is he even making new music? Is he still in the music business or what? Certainly he possessed prodigious technical skills on his chosen instrument—picked up after an adolescence spent listening to jazz drummers Gene Krupa, Max Roach, and Buddy Rich. Submission of reader comments is restricted to Mark Steyn Club members only. If you want to understand why our republic seems to be faltering, look no further than than collapse of mainline Protestantism in America. This post isn’t even about where he is. Zep just won the lawsuit defending their ownership of Stairway to Heaven. It just stays the same, moving straight ahead, almost oblivious to the song (aside from the odd little snare grace notes and extra hits). Bachman got his musical break when executives at EMI Music Publishing in New York City heard a demo tape, and aided him in securing a record deal with Columbia Records. He could sense, and tap into, and express, the spirit of any number. Well, I'm no Tal, Matthew, but I'll give you my thoughts. But Bonham deployed (or didn't deploy) his skills in just the way each piece of music (each unique, shamanic, musical spell) asked. The album is Led Zeppelin I, released in early 1969. Maybe that's one part of the puzzle? Bachman, who was well on his way to becoming a church leader before his unpleasant epiphany about a year ago, says he never set out to refute the religion that had formed his entire life. No part of this website or any of its contents may be reproduced, copied, modified or adapted, without the prior written consent of Mark Steyn Enterprises. (As fantastic a drummer as Buddy Rich was, it's impossible to imagine him ever locking into anything as simple or heavy as Bonham's groove on "When the Levee Breaks", let alone staying there for seven minutes.). In Chicago, mobs of Zep fans waited on street corners for early morning Tribune newspaper delivery trucks to arrive so they could obtain a mail-in ticket voucher. As she wanted to pay tribute to musicians from Canada, she performed Bieber’s “Baby.” Somehow or other, the young Bonham had figured out how Rich tuned his snare and toms—a technique which focused on tension (not tuning to particular pitches), cranked the resonant-head tension unusually high, and mostly avoided dampeners—and used the same technique on his own kit. At five seconds, the hi-hat hits double into eighth-notes as the E chord shots repeat. He is also the nephew of Robbie , Gary and Tim Bachman . RANDY BACHMAN & BACHMAN/CUMMINGS TOUR DATES SEE MORE DATES. And the bands that followed those that didn't survive were thin gruel compared to what had been in the 60's and 70's. To use my previous example, compare Steve Winwood's "Valerie" in 1982 to "The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys." Yet my enjoyment flowed endlessly and tirelessly because, as well, I could darkly weep to The Rain Song or Ten Years Gone or That's The Way. Like I wrote in my above post, lots of artists that I liked continued to record well into the 1980's and beyond. But on "One Headlight", the guy does something different: He doesn't really play any fills aside from little snare things once in a while (that I remember). It was a very nice surprise to read a tribute to John Bonham in this space. This is clearly a guy with some intellectual seriousness. The effect is that *the entire song moves around the drums*. The snare is unusually loud in the mix. It was Tuesday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 13, 1968).The US president was Lyndon B. Johnson (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Harold Wilson (Labour), Pope St Paul VI was leading the Catholic Church. His first album, from 1999, was a great (and totally unexpected) pop work. In my soul I knew Led Zeppelin was gone. The song was a Top 10 hit in the United States and internationally, earning music awards such as BMI's "Song of the Year" award, and much media exposure, including appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Its website calls for the "disruption of the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure", the end of accepting heterosexuality as normal, and the avoidance of "environments in which men are centered". Its founders openly profess their allegiance to Marxism, history's most genocidal ideology. The point is, I knew in real time, what music had sounded like in 1980 and before and I witnessed the transition to bands like U2, INXS, Def Leopard, etc. The fills signal the onset of some new part; switching from hi-hat to the ride cymbal helps "lift" the chorus; the odd crash keeps things exciting; tom hits help build suspense, etc. : ) That was the gospel, my friends (mic drop). That is on the nose. That entire first Tal Bachman album is excellent. Tal has some advice for the Christian Church: stop retreating and re-learn your scriptural principles. Eventually I pulled over in Oxnard and bought a Sunday newspaper to confirm the news. Bachmann, who ran for president in 2012 and retired from congress in 2014, considered running for Al Franken's vacated U.S. Senate seat last year, but God never asked her to. At least not in the US.

I realize it sounds rude, but it's the only way. I look forward to reading more from Tal Bachman. Tal Bachman is an excellent musician in his own right, and had a smash hit in 1998, “She’s So High,” which reached No. John Bonham left behind a wife, Pat, and two children, Jason and Zoe, as well as an amazing musical legacy for every aspiring musician and drummer. Always. At seven seconds, the addition of a swung sixteenth-note (played on cowbell with a brush) signals the imminent, exhilarating plunge into a song you've never heard, but which you now want to hear more than anything else. I will try to be objective, but be forewarned; I do not have a lot of good things to say about this pretentious, washed-up has-been.

The denominations growing fastest are the more conservative, more patriarchal denominations, so there's that, plus you have your own actual scriptures which prescribe male pastoring, but proscribe female pastoring.

I have this theory that decades are 5 years out of sync with people, so the changes started in 1975 with the Punk movement, (listen to the album of "That Summer" from Ray Winstone's first movie for the sound of the summer of 1978) and by 1980 we were into the swansong (hmmm) of the big rock groups. These aren't the only Black Lives Matter lies, of course. 3.) The end is the creation of a powerful, moving, shared, binding, emotional/psychological/spiritual experience through music.

And now, when an organization shows up actively trying to subvert the forthcoming election, cheering on murders, beating people up, falsely accusing people, inviting demonic possession so as to more effectively impose the Satanic ideology of Marxism, and browbeating the very religion which started the abolitionist and civil rights movements in the first place...again, Christians cave, and accommodate, and seek approval, and do everything except stick to their own principles, if they can even remember what those are supposed to be. Protestantism and functioning representative self-government go hand in hand.
