Speaking with Ultimate Guitar, Police drummer Stewart Copeland said he wan't very impressed by John Bonham because Robert Plant's singing was so off-putting that he did not fully appreciate what a 'monster' drummer Bonzo was until much later. In part, Copeland put it this way: "I was a Mitch (Mitchell, drummer with the Jimi Hendrix Experience) guy and a Ginger (Baker of Cream) guy and Bonham I didn't get. I didn't notice him because the singing put me off and I couldn't take Led Zeppelin seriously because of that singing."
