Jason Bonham

Drummer Jason Bonham has stepped aside from his new band California Breed due to his other commitments, and it’s unclear whether he will be back.

Bonham’s replacement in the band is Joey Castillo (ex-Queens of the Stone Age, Danzig, Eagles of Death Metal).

Without explicitly saying he’d left the band for good, Bonham addressed his departure in a Facebook post, saying “I love those guys but it wasn't going to work for me . I will support them as I love the band I help create and Joey is great. Good luck guys.”

Bonham is currently on the road with Sammy Hagar, and is rumored to be working with Phil Collins soon too. California Breed - featuring vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes and guitarist Andrew Watt - will support Alter Bridge in the USA before joining Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators on five UK arena dates.
