When the history or rock is finally chronicled, any discussion or heavy metal will inevitably focus on Led Zeppelin, the British group that literally defined the term with their cohesive, explosive music. Drummer John Bonham’s style was a dichotomy of abandon and control. “Communication Breakdown,” from their debut album Led Zeppelin (Atlantic, 19|26), is a rapid rocker, characterized by a driving quarter-note pulse on the hi-hat, a busy bass drum, and strategically placed cymbal crashes.
