A lot of talented children have probably been asked by a parent to entertain family and friends. No big deal, and a good way to get used to performing for others. But when Jason Bonham was a small child and got called in to entertain, the family friends he played his drums for could be anyone from Jimmy Page to some of the guys from the group Bad Company. That’s what happens when your father is drummer John Bonham, one of the original members of the legendary rock band Led Zeppelin. John Bonham died in 1980, but Jason, who has marked a few places in music history himself, has stepped in from time to time to help keep his father’s memory alive.
In 1988, Jason took his father’s spot in the televised, first-ever Led Zeppelin reunion at the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary concert, which included Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones. Later that year, he went on to tour with Page and recorded the album Outrider with him. In 1995, Jason represented his father when Led Zeppelin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2007 when Jason played drums in the most anticipated concert of all time – the Led Zeppelin reunion at London’s O2 Arena, with surviving members Page, Plant and Jones.
Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening is a can’t miss event for fans of Led Zeppelin and the sound they’ve helped to create!
