New Crowdfunding Campaign for Memorial to Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham

Redditch, Worcestershire, UK, November 27, 2015 — /EPR NETWORK/ — When asked the question “Who is the best drummer of all time?” most music fans do not hesitate in naming the late Led Zeppelin powerhouse, John “Bonzo” Bonham for the highest accolade. And that’s shown time and time again in music industry polls the world over.

Yet 35 years after his untimely death, there is still no memorial to John in his hometown of Redditch in Worcestershire. But that is set to change in 2016, if a local fundraising group’s final drive achieves its target.

The John Bonham Memorial Fund recently launched a Crowdfunding campaign,( www.crowdfunder.co.uk/john-bonham-memorial-redditch) , aimed at raising £50,000 in just 56 days for a bronze memorial in the centre of the town where John was born and grew up.

“Having, until now, focused our efforts on local fundraising, this campaign is intended to reach Led Zeppelin and music fans around the world” says Fund Treasurer, Ros Sidaway.

“We’ve added some attractive rewards to entice people to pledge amounts varying from just £10 up to £2500! Everyone who pledges by 5.00pm on 6th January 2016 will have their name added to a memorial scroll to be buried in a time capsule beneath the memorial, as well as being listed on a ‘thank you’ page on the johnbonhammmemorialfund.com website.”

The official launch took place on Sunday 22nd November, which also marked the 46th anniversary of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” entering the US Billboard Singles Chart.

The JBMF are hoping that rock fans worldwide will now show a whole lotta love for their crowdfunding campaign.
