Led Zeppelin Drummer’s Gong Sells For $64,000
John Bonham’s gong was sold for $64,000 to an anonymous buyer after failing to sell at auction. The piece was consigned by Deborah Bonham (sister) and Joan Bonham (mother). The gong was purchased after a Bonhams and Butterfields Entertainment Memorabilia auction failed to sell the late drummer’s instrument.
The gong was originally thought to sell as high as $12,000.
