John Bonham

By Marjorie Nichols.

John Bonham

The first wave of American rock n' rollers said Music died the day the little plane carrying Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and J.P. Richardson (aka "The Big Bopper") went down near the town of Clear Lake, Iowa in 1959.

I say much of rock n' roll hit the skids 21 years later, the day John Bonham died.

Bonham, the iconic and hard-partying drummer for Led Zeppelin, died on this day in 1980 at the age of 32. His demise brought about the breakup of one of the biggest, most celebrated bands in rock n' roll history.

Rossington-Collins Band

Rossington-Collins Band

Over the weekend, my kids and I ventured into a local deli. The piped-in music at this place is usually pretty lame with mostly pop hits from the late '80s to the early '00s. So when I heard the chorus of "Don't Misunderstand Me," by the Rossington-Collins Band, I must have gasped out loud because the kids all turned to look at me like I was about to hit the floor.

"It must be the song," my older son said, smirking. "Mom always acts like this when she hears some old rock song that nobody else knows."

The Rock Report

The Rock Report

It is with great pride and excitement that I have accepted an invitation to try my hand at 'blogging for Rock 101 KLOL.

My name is Marjorie Nichols. I'm a native Houstonian and a veteran KLOL Rock 'n Roll Army member. I first tuned in somewhere around 1975 when I was in elementary school and just beginning to realize there was a whole world of music far beyond my parents' record collection of 1960s folk, the opera of Mario Lanza, and Herb Alpert and his Tijuana Brass.
