Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience At Rocksino Dec 13th

Are you a Led Zeppelin fan? Still holding out hope they will reunite (like Jimmy Page does)? Well if $800 Million couldn’t get them together then don’t hold your breath.

What to do? Check out Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience which is coming to the Hard Rock Rocksino on December 13th. If your a Zeppelin fan, you won’t be disappointed.

Jason Bonham is perhaps best known for being the son of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.  Jason first began playing drums at the age of four, and appeared with his father in the film The Song Remains the Same, drumming on a scaled-down kit. At 17, he joined his first band, Airrace. In 1985, he joined Virginia Wolf, making two albums and touring the US supporting the Firm.

In 1988, Bonham joined former Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page for his Outrider album and tour. In May of the same year, Bonham appeared with the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin for a performance at Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary concert in New York City.

In 2010, Bonham formed Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience, a live homage to his father’s band, which toured worldwide during 2011. Bonham more recently played drums, along with sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson of the group Heart on vocals and guitar respectively, for a performance of Stairway to Heaven during the Led Zeppelin tribute at the Kennedy Center Honors in December 2012 while band members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones looked on.

The Lex Zeppelin Experience dates fulfills Jason life-long dream of performing alongside his father via onstage clips. “We do (When The) Levee Breaks which is a wonderful part of the show, which is one of my favorite parts of the show because I actually get to play with dad,” he said. “Like when I do ‘Moby Dick’; it’s a moment where I’m playing with my father. For people who weren’t aware, but, we didn’t have two drum kits in the house. So when I get to do this these days, it’s really for the first time ever that we really get to play together, because we never did in real life. We never really actually got to experience that. And I’m reading articles on what my father had said, where he said, ‘Y’know, my son plays drums, and I’d really love to have him play next to me at the Royal Albert Hall.'”
