Although we all miss John Bonham, many Rock and Roll fans can agree that his son, Jason Bonham, is one talented musician as well.
Jason famously filled Bonzo’s shoes and throne behind the drums for Led Zeppelin's 2007 performance at London’s 02 Arena, which has been transferred into the concert film, Celebration Day.
However playing with his dad’s former band isn’t the only way that Bonham has been staying musically active. Jason has been performing live with two other groups: Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience and the supergroup, Black Country Communion for the past several years, and now the drummer has revealed some exciting news about another project.
In an interview with Classic Rock Revisited, Bonham teased that he may have a solo album on the way with a seriously impressive cast of guest artists.
“There is talk of a Jason Bonham album. I’ve always wanted to do an album with half the people I’ve worked with throughout my career. I am talking about people like Robert [Plant], Paul Rodgers, Jeff Beck and Slash. And then do other songs with a bunch of guys that I’ve always wanted to work with.”
As for what the album would sound like, Bonham explains, “I’ve been working on some original songs with the band that does the Led Zeppelin Experience. We are going to start writing as an original band and see what comes out of it. It will be kind of Zeppelin-esque because of the way the guys play and sing but there is nothing wrong with that.”
Anything “Zeppelin-esque” gets our vote, especially if it contains the work of Bonzo’s son!
