Last Wednesday, Jason Bonham, the son of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, was in the studio at 98.7 The Gater in West Palm Beach, Florida to talk with Andy Preston about the band’s brand new CD/DVD Celebration Day.
In the interview, Jason was asked why a Led Zeppelin reunion tour never materialized after their 2007 one-off gig at the O2 Arena in London, where he filled in for his late father on the drums. He stated that he and frontman Robert Plant spoke very long and hard about it, and that the reason a reunion tour never happened was because of personal reasons. Jason also claimed that Plant told him that his father was the drummer of 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.”

As reported yesterday, three of the surviving members of Led Zeppelin are reuniting on Monday (December 3rd) for an appearance on “Late Show With David Letterman”.
