Sunday Cinema: The John Bonham Story

DAVE GROHL NARRATES AN HOUR-LONG
BBC RADIO DOCUMENTARY ABOUT JOHN BONHAM

We're cheating a little bit for this week's Sunday Cinema selection. While the 2010 BBC Radio documentary The John Bonham Story fits the column's criteria of being either a concert film or a music-related documentary, it is audio-only. However, it's one incredible hour of audio about the life of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham as narrated by Dave Grohl.

Grohl has never hid his appreciation for Bonham, who he calls his favorite drummer of all- time. Over the course of the extremely engaging documentary, we hear rare musical performances, interviews with the surviving members of Led Zeppelin and words from a few of those who intimately knew Bonham. Grohl does a fantastic job as narrator and clearly has a command of the subject matter.

Listen to Dave Grohl narrate "The John Bonham Story."
