well, no one was really responsible for his death, right?
just another chapter in history, and a huge one.
the end of the band was not happy. that is why i am unable to bring myself to listen to any 'in through the out door' stuff. all my love is so beautiful =(
i heard all the way to physical graffiti.

I am probably the most un-emotional person, but when I hear 'All Of My Love' I can't help but shed a few tears. Such a beautiful song.

I think Jimmy took it personally for a very long time, as it happened at his home. It may still haunt him. But only Bonzo was really responsible for his own actions...he flirted with mortality alot. It was terribly sad. When I hear "All of My Love" you can't help but think of Robert's son, tragically dying at 6, was it? Such a beautiful song.

apparently, they were spending a lot of time together (jimmy and bonzo) during the period when they were recording ittod.
well, they say bonzo's heavy drinking can be partly attributed to his homesickness, due to the constant touring and all. he was apparently having bouts of depression, leading to heavy drinking.
well, we ll know what happened after that =(

There's a huge amount of pressure when a band has reached such heights as LZ...and of course drinking can tend to deepen depression, but I'm sure Bonzo never meant to drink enough to die, yet those things happen. Those who dance at the edge of the precipice sometimes slip and fall... :(
