Revisit (A-Z) - Bonham "Mad Hatter"

Was it that a Led Zeppelinish sound wasn't what the public wanted at the time? Was it that they weren't pretty enough pretty boys, or just the wrong timing? Was it too long after their alright selling debut? I'm not really sure why Mad Hatter tanked in 1992. Check out this track which could have easily been placed on "Physical Graffiti" without raising any eyebrows. 

Maybe that was the issue. Maybe, on this album the really good tracks owed a bit too much to the mighty Led Zep. But, hey, the drummer's bloody dad was in the band so it's OK to sound like that surely! 

Another highlight was this epic:

Maybe now that it is finally OK to sound like a classic hard rock band (ahem GVF) it could be a time to revisit this good album released by Bonham in 1992. And those drums! They boom so loudly...

I love this album. I asked Jason Bonham after a Foreigner concert why there was no third Bonham album. "Drugs are a terrible thing, man" was his answer.

I did own both these albums but I don't actually remember them too well, to be honest. Didn't stay too long in my collection. I think I remember them being pretty decent, just not my thing.
