A European sees the Pacific Ocean for the first time, Congress passes the Bill of Rights, the Little Rock Nine get a U.S. Army escort to school, and Led Zeppelin's John Bonham dies, all on this day.

1980: Led Zeppelin drummer John "Bonzo" Bonham dies of asphyxiation on his own vomit due to consumption of alcohol while sleeping at Jimmy Page's house in Clewer, Windsor, England. He was 32. The remaining members of the band would decide to disband in December 1980 rather than replace Bonham, who is widely considered to be one of the greatest drummers in the history of rock music.
