JASON BONHAM Talks LED ZEPPELIN Reunion In Video Interview

Artisan News Service recently spoke to drummer Jason Bonham about JASON BONHAM'S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE — which celebrates the life and music of Jason's father, the legendary LED ZEPPELIN drummer John Bonham. Jason talked about the hold-out of Robert Plant for a ZEPPELIN reunion; recalled his memories of the 2007 ZEPPELIN show in support of Ahmet Ertegun; and stated that fans were positive toward his JASON BONHAM'S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE. Watch the interview below.

JASON BONHAM'S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE wrapped a successful 39-city North American tour late last mobtg. The critically acclaimed North American trek stunned audiences and featured Jason Bonham on drums, Tony Catania on guitar and theremin, Michael Devin on bass, Stephen Leblanc on keyboardists/pedal-steel guitars and James Dylan on lead vocals. The tour included a roof-raising, jam-packed show at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood in November which saw Jason's younger sister Zoe Bonham perform blues-harp on the ZEPPELIN classic "When The Levee Breaks".

According to Billboard.com, the tour grossed $2.1 million after playing 38 cities and cracked the top 50 of trade publication Pollstar's annual top tours list. Bonham is expected to launch a second leg in the spring, although details have not been announced.

"I never imagined we'd receive the reaction we've been getting," explained Jason. "It's beyond my wildest dreams to come out represent my family, my father and the music of LED ZEPPELIN."
