According to Fargo, North Dakota radio station 107.9 The Fox, drummer Jason Bonham revealed this past Friday morning (August 22) on a Detroit radio station that he is leaving FOREIGNER at the end of this month.Since Jason filled the seat once occupied by his late father John Bonham at the LED ZEPPELIN show in London last December, does this raise the likelihood of a full-fledged LED ZEPPELIN reunion? Jason, who was born in England and now lives in Florida, said, "I've been over [to England] a couple of times. I've been working with Jimmy [Page] and John Paul [Jones] and trying to do just do some new material and some writing. I don't know what it will be, but it will be something." Jason said, "My time with FOREIGNER is coming to an end. This is the first time I've talked about it. I leave at the end of this month so, I mean, I'm looking forward to taking some time out to be with the family really. Since I moved to America I've been on the road, so my first priority is to go and watch my kids grow up, because they've grown up way to fast in the last four years." There has been no word yet from FOREIGNER on who will replace Jason.
