John Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Drum Kit

“Wow Ross …Truly beautiful work … Thanks.”

Robert Plant



This was a project for Robert Plant to shoot John Bonham’s legendary 1968 Gray Pearl Ludwig drum kit (No 664107) which was used to create the thunderous drums on “When the Levee Breaks” on Led Zeppelin 4 recorded at Headley Grange.

The shots where produced for an auction to sell off the kit to raise funds for a statue of the drummer in his home town of Redditch.
