Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience
Many talented children are asked by their parents to entertain friends and family, but for Jason Bonham, son of legendary Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, that often meant playing for Jimmy Page or the members of Bad Company! Jason didn’t start playing the drums until his father died and took up the music as a way to “get to know” his dad. With the encouragement of Robert Plant, Jason sat-in on drums at the highly anticipated 2007 Led Zeppelin reunion concert in London’s O2 Arena. Following that historic event, Bonham created his “Led Zeppelin Experience”, a spectacular multi-media tribute to his father and the Led Zeppelin legacy.
