In the bucolic English village of Rushock you’ll find the final resting place of one of the greatest drummers that ever lived: John Bonham, the drummer for Led Zeppelin. Bonham’s body was discovered on September 25, 1980, after a 12-hour drinking binge. Fans come from all over the globe to pay their respects to this musical legend, often leaving more than just flowers behind as tribute.
Know Before You Go
The grave is in Rushock Parish churchyard of St Michael's Church. Once you've found the village you can't miss the church or grave, just don't go to the other nearby St Michael's (a 15-minute drive away)!
