Bonhamology Vol 1 feat. George Fludas
Bonhamology Vol 1 feat. George Fludas
It wasn't just the feel of John Bonham's playing that made him one of the most iconic drummers in rock history, but also his sound. By utilizing a combination of oversized Ludwig drums and large Paiste cymbals, Bonham achieved a sound that was bigger and more powerful than any drummer before him.
To pay tribute to Bonham's undeniable influence on modern music, we partnered with Chicago-based drummer extraordinaire and Bonham aficionado, George Fludas, to produce Bonhamology Vol 1. This extensive drum library features pristinely recorded and mixed drum samples, loops, and even full, unedited takes. Looking for more sonic control? Select The Multitrack option and get instant access to 16 channels of audio, allowing you to mix every drum performance to your own taste.
Recorded at Steve Albini's legendary Electrical Audio studio in Chicago, we utilized a vintage 1971 Ludwig Maple Thermogloss drum kit, along with a combination of early '70s black label Paiste 2002s and late '60s Giant Beat Cymbals, all mirroring the exact same sizes as Bonham's set up. In addition to capturing Bonham's sonic fingerprint as accurately as possible, George also recorded eight different sessions, each tracked at a different bpm and feel, paying homage to different Led Zeppelin songs.

About George Fludas
Chicago drummer George Fludas was born in Chicago on October 10, 1966. He was inspired to play drums by his father, who was also a drummer, and who exposed him to great jazz drummers such as Art Blakey, Max Roach, and "Philly" Joe Jones.
George has performed at numerous jazz venues in the U.S. such as the Jazz Showcase in Chicago, Yoshi’s in Oakland, the Blue Note, Village Vanguard, Smoke and the Jazz Standard in New York and Catalina's in Hollywood, as well as many international Jazz Festivals, including Montreal Festival du Jazz, Bern Jazz Fest in Switzerland, Glasgow and Edinburgh Jazz Fests, Vitoria Jazz Fest, San Sebastian Fest in Spain and the USS Norway Jazz Cruise. He toured Europe and Japan extensively as a member of Ray Brown's Trio, and with groups led by Hank Jones, Diana Krall, Monty Alexander, Cedar Walton and Joey Defrancesco.
George lives in Chicago with his wife and two sons and performs regularly with local artists and visiting headliners at clubs and concert venues throughout the city. He continues to tour often with many of the top names in jazz. He can be heard on numerous CDs as a sideman with Ray Brown, Eric Alexander, Monty Alexander, Kyle Asche, Geof Bradfield, Scott Burns, Bobby Broom, Lin Halliday and The Chicago Jazz Orchestra.
George started his YouTube channel, Bonhamology, 4 years ago as a resource for analysis and demonstration of Bonham's drumming. He also plays with People's Front of Zeppelin, which is a virtual YouTube Led Zeppelin cover band.
