El artículo fue publicado por Dailymail hace unos días, pero no estará de más dar un vistazo a los cinco baterías que Jason Bonham considera como los mejores. Para algunos, entre los que se encuentra el que aquí escribe, puede resultar curiosa la elección de Phil Collins como el mejor, pero, no hay duda de que Jason, en temas de batería, sabe bastante más que el resto de los mortales.
1.- Phil Collins – Genesis
2.- John Bonham – Led Zeppelin
3.- Joe Morello – Dave Brubeck Quartet
4.- Stewart Copeland – The Police
5.- Keith Moon – The Who
Jason sobre su padre:
Many drummers have told me how good my dad was. In the end I had to go back and listen to him objectively. Dad was technically amazing but he had no training. It was all instinct: he just had a feel for what was needed and a sense of groove. For him it was like a heartbeat. People don’t get his sense of groove, they assume it’s all power. When you think of a track like When The Levee Breaks it’s quite a simple pattern, but so many drummers play it really badly because it’s about the feel.
Jason sobre Keith:
Keith was such a free player – he wasn’t technically flash but the pushing and pulling he did with the sound was amazing. He was more with the guitar than the bass, melodic and creative. Strangely, my mate Zak Starkey (Ringo Starr’s son) ended up in his seat. My dad was good mates with Ringo. Zak’s a phenomenal player, a real influence and inspiration on me. I was envious when he got to play with the Who. When I finally got to play the Zep reunion he was the first person to text me congratulations
