Bonham was with Led Zeppelin since the very beginning, embarking on numerous tours and debauched excursions with the group throughout the ‘70s. In September of 1980, Bonham, who had been battling alcoholism, anxiety, and the effects of years of excess, was found dead by his bandmates at the age of 32 of pulmonary aspiration.

For those unaware of the incredible style and finesse with which Bonham attacked each and every song, here's an excellent little explainer.
