John Bonham Drum Out Take For “Fool In The Rain”

Check out this bad ass clip of just John Bonham’s drums on the Led Zeppelin song “Fool In The Rain.”  The song was on the 1979 album “In Through The Out Door.”   At around the (2:25) John Bonham breaks it down samba style, simply amazing…

The song exhibits a Latin feel. Bonham plays a half-time shuffle beat similar to the “Purdie shuffle” rhythm attributed to session drummer Bernard Puridie, along with a samba-style breakdown.  A master drum track shows that the samba breakdown (2:25) mark was recorded separately.

This song was never performed live at Led Zeppelin concerts, as it was heavily studio-based.  However, on October 5, 2005, Robert Plant performed the song with Pearl Jam at a Hurricane Katrina benefit show.
