John Bonham Net Worth: John Bonham was born May 31, 1948, Redditch, United Kingdom. In his early years as a budding musician, John Bonham struck up a friendship using a fellow drummer who resided nearby named Garry Allcock. Based on John’s brother, Michael, John was greatly inspired when he saw the 1956 biopic movie ‘The Benny Goodman Story’ which starred Gene Krupa, the swing era master, playing the drums. John Bonham was an avid listener of music. He also listened to American Jazz featuring drummers like Buddy Rich, Art Blakey, Max Roach and Louis Bellson. Following the breakup of a group called The Yardbirds, guitarist Jimmy Page formed a brand new group when he recruited Robert Plant, who in turn proposed John Bonham as a group member. The newest group was first known as The New Yardbirds and afterwards became Led Zeppelin. In September 1980 all four members of Led Zeppelin had started rehearsing in preparation for their very first tour of North America since 1977, that was intended to kick off in Montreal, Canada. The rehearsals occurred near Jimmy Page’s Windsor residence where the group was staying. Throughout the journey to rehearsal, Bonham apparently requested to stop for breakfast, where he continued to drink four quadruple vodkas (equal to sixteen shots). Then he continued to drink heavily after arriving to rehearsal. Bonham died tragically as a result of aspiration of vomit during his slumber. John Bonham was just 32 years old.
