New John Bonham Book Set for September Release

A new book focusing on the life of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham is due this September.

Beast: John Bonham And The Rise Of Led Zeppelin by author C.M. Kushins, will be released via Hachette Books on Sept. 7. The book will include a forward written by Foo Fighters front man and Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl.

The book will do a deep dive into Bonham’s life and work, beginning with how  he learned to play the drums at the age of five, and despite never taking formal lessons, began drumming for local bands immediately upon graduating from secondary school. Bonham was later recruited to join the band who would eventually become known as Led Zeppelin-and before the year was out, Bonham and his three bandmates would become the richest rock band in the world.

The tome marks the first major biography of Led Zeppelin’s late drummer, who died at the age of 32 on  September 25th, 1980 of pulmonary edema, which is fluid accumulation in the lungs.
