Huliq.com reports: Enter Music Publishing, publishers of diverse, hip drum/percussion magazines, such as Drum! Drum! Interactive, Traps and How To Play Drums, has made available its February 2008 Drum! special NAMM (National Association of Music Merchandisers) show issue. It features an innovative tribute the drumming legacy of John Bonham (LED ZEPPELIN) including a joint interview involving John and his son Jason.
The interview (printed in a special minibook bound into the issue) celebrates the compelling 40-year old hold that John Bonham has made on the imaginations of drummers worldwide, and his son Jason's recent powerful performances with the reunited LED ZEP.
Since John passed away in 1978 it's logical to ask how one could interview the father and son together. This editorial sleight-of-hand was accomplished by asking Jason and John the same interview questions twenty years apart. Back in 1993, Drum! Editor Andy Doerschuk conceived the double interview between Jason and John Bonham. He asked Jason the exact same questions that John had answered in an interview twenty years before — and then published the answers side by side. The editorial result was both compelling and prescient. Though Jason had performed once with the remaining members of ZEPPELIN in 1988, no one knew then that in 2008 that Bonham Jr. would take over his father's chair with LED ZEPPELIN. The original John and Jason interview has been updated and re-edited for this special issue.
"Like our 25-page opus to John Bonham that appeared in Traps issue 3, which completely sold out, 'Like Father Like Son' will surprise and inspire drummers of all ages," said Phil Hood, publisher of Enter Music Publishing.
