Incredible drummer and influence on modern music. Also a total fruitcake.

Ah, man. That sucks. He had the quintessential badass 70's drum sound. Right up there with Bonham. Drummers are nuts... I should know.

Such a classic drum sound.

The last band I drummed for used to cover White Room. Such fun to play that song. Probably my second favourite drummer of that era after Mitch Mitchell of the Hendrix Experience.
