John Bonham and the story of Led Zeppelin IV
To mark the 40th anniversary of the seminal Led Zeppelin IV we look back at how Bonzo and the boys made one of the greatest albums of all time. Tracing the album from start to finish we delve into the huge impact that Bonham's playing had on this classic record. We also talk to the album's engineer Andy Johns and get the lowdown on how he got that drum sound on 'When The Levee Breaks'.
