Moby Dick

John Henry Bonhams drum solo Moby Dick. The original name for Bonham's drum solo was called Pat's Delight a name he gave for his wife Pat. The name change came about when John's son Jason Bonham was a young boy and he would ask his Dad to play the long song that is big just like Moby. John decided to change the name of his drum solo and in 1969 to 75 it was called Moby Dick. Then in 77 its name changed again to Over The Top and included the theme from John's song called Out on The Tiles from Led Zeppelin III (1970) The drum solo could vary in length fro 12 to 30 minutes and it was used to accompany Bonzo's drag racing fantasy in Led Zeppelin's movie The Song Remains the Same. John Bonham's name always comes out near the top or at the top of favourite drummers past and present. His bass playing partner in Led Zeppelin John Paul Jones said that you could always tell it was john Bonham playing the drums. No matter what kit he was playing he always sounded the same his playing was so powerfull and precise.
