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. It was exactly the sort of civil religion—a republican Christianity—which Rousseau had earlier suggested could never exist. If you want to understand why our republic seems to be faltering, look no further than than collapse of mainline Protestantism in America. John was a wonderful musician for sure. I remember the first time I heard Warren Zevon's Run Straight Down. 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. Of course, another may simply have to do with the passing of time and aging, both of the artists and the audience. The thing I love about Bonham (and Moon and Copeland and Peart for that matter), is that you can tune into the isolated drum track on any of their songs and know pretty much instantly who is playing AND what the song is. Is he still in the music business or what? That is, less interesting and more formulaic mass consumption music. It's a great question. He could be dead in a ditch for all I know. Bonham's twist was to retain Rich's tuning techniques, while adapting some of Rich's trademark techniques (like the sixteenth-note triplet), using bigger drums, and adding extra patterns and gears to his repertoire. And yes, I know that a lot of women will say that a man is pretty much 14 until about age 64, or they die, but what do they know? Russia didn't make you lose.

Stewart Copeland played on Big Time? 1980 was a watershed in music for the worse. After you acquire a large body of great work, that's what people want, not your new stuff? Those were all black lives, but Black Lives Matter didn't care about any of them. What other rock band could play Kashmir? He criticizes “utterly vacuous ‘praise songs’ which all sound like U2 album rejects from 1986,” and calls Pope Francis “a social justice twerp.” Okay, now I have a serious man crush. Maybe that's one part of the puzzle? Bonham over Rich? And that is why you can hear adrenalized razzle-dazzle on "Good Times, Bad Times", "Rock and Roll", or "We're Gonna Groove"; jazzy, dynamic, drama on "Since I've Been Loving You" or "I Can't Quit You"; stolid, rolling snare throughout all of "Poor Tom"; titanic, Valhallian pounding on "In My Time of Dying"; expansiveness on "In The Light"; hypnotic repetition on "When the Levee Breaks", "Four Sticks", or "Kashmir"; something like levity on "The Ocean", and dozens of other shifts in approach, all dictated by the spirit of each number, but all underpinned by a concrete solidity.
