Rock Report: Jason Bonham Reviews Led Zeppelin
Jason Bonham may have sat in for his famous father, Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, when Zep reunited in 2007 at London’s O2 Arena, but he never got a chance to see the footage of the show until last month’s premiere of Celebration Day.
Needless to say, Bonham is very impressed. “Jimmy [Page] would break into a solo and the whole place would go nuts,” says Bonham. “It was like re-living the gig all over again.”
And as for his performance that December night in 2007 at London’s O2 Arena, he says, “When you sit in that seat, it’s the greatest feeling. I had a real sense of accomplishment, but even when I was playing I half expected any minute now the doors are going to open and my dad will appear and go ‘Oi, hop it!’”
Celebration Day will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, CD and vinyl on November 19th.
