JASON BONHAM On Why LED ZEPPELIN Reunion Tour Never Materialized (Video)

Jason Bonham stopped by the studio at 98.7 The Gater in West Palm Beach, Florida on Wednesday (November 28) to talk with Andy Preston about the new LED ZEPPELIN CD/DVD "Celebration Day", which is in stores now.

Jason talked in depth about the 2007 show at the O2 Arena, the "Celebration Day" project, and said he was honored and proud to be part of any official product being released under the LED ZEPPELIN banner. He also talked about the final rehearsal for the show which took place at Shepperton Studios.

Asked to elaborate about why a LED ZEPPELIN reunion tour never materialized after the O2 show, Jason said he and ZEPPELIN singer Robert Plant spoke very long and hard about it. It wasn't simply because Robert had other things going on. Jason shared a conversation that he and Robert had, and it turns out there were more personal reasons. He said Robert told him "[late LED ZEPPELIN drummer and Jason's father] John [Bonham] was the drummer in LED ZEPPELIN" and that he "struggles sometimes just thinking about trying to create some magic again when he's not there... He was a very, very dear friend of mine that I miss every day."
