John Bonham Didn’t Use A Click Track
Based on this super fascinating article I found over at MusicMachinery.com, many of my favorite tunes were never recorded to a click. Yet another example of performance trumping perfection. Don’t get me wrong, click tracks have their place, but they should never get in the way of the song’s emotion.
Besides John Bonham and Zep, the article also examines tunes from The Beatles, Weezer and Britney Spears.
