Bonham Hopes For Hologram Jam
Drummer Jason Bonham says he's in discussions to realize his dream of performing a drum solo with a hologram of his late father, Led Zeppelin legend John Bonham.
In an interview with Legendary Rock Interviews , Bonham says there's much he would love to do in bringing his Led Zeppelin Experience tour to its full potential, although he's constrained by the limits of the footage gathered in the 1970s.
"It's imperative that I continue putting together the best shows and take it to the next level," Bonham says. "I'm talking to people about holograms, and my dream is to do the hologram drum solo with dad next to me. I am trying to work with the limited footage I have, to put it together in a way that works and is purposeful. I did not want to go onstage and play Led Zeppelin songs; there has to be more than that. I wanted to create a complete experience of what Led Zeppelin means to me, growing up around them and being part of it all my life."
Bonham also opened up about what it was like growing up with a famous father. "When he was at home he was dad. I really didn’t know the other side of him until I grew older and was working and spending time with people who knew him. As I grew older, Jimmy and Robert could tell me the stories! The guys were so young back then, everything they were achieving was before they were even in their thirties, before he was even 25 he had already recorded Led Zeppelin IV, which is one of the biggest selling record albums of all time. He’d done so much by that time but he was still a kid really."
