My guess here is that Bonham was more sheer power but with an awesome finesse all his own. Paice is/was much more finesse and can play many styles equally brilliant (not that Bonzo couldn't...). But I agree that Ian Paice surely is underrated as a drummer by comparison to the fame/height of Bonzo's popularity. He was in the overall more widely popular band,after all. Much love to alot of DP's catalog tho. I even got into the first 3 records after a time. If you think they were brilliant players as the Mach II era and beyond-- just dig in a bit on the early stuff. You'll be in awe of just how utterly fantastic they were at such a young age! iN some ways,when they hardened up their sound,they dumbed down the musicianship. Hard to believe--but true. These guys were monsters from the start. T
