Virgil Donati Rehearses For Bonham Bash

Virgil Donati

We got the rare opportunity to watch the always-astounding Virgil Donati rehearse with the all-star house band for the 2012 edition of Bonzo’s Birthday Bash – a tribute to the late Led Zeppelin drummer. In this clip the group practices “Kashmir” from Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti, in which Donati’s fills become increasingly less Bonham-ish as the song proceeds. Tell us if you think his interpretation works within the context of such a historic song in the comments section below.
