Son of late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, Jason Bonham, was formed Led Zeppelin tribute band called “Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience” in 2009. But, he used another name in last summer: “Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening”.
Speaking to Billboard, Jason Bonham has shared the story about why he used “Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening” name instead of “Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience”.
Here’s the statement:
“I got a letter from their attorney, who happens to be my attorney as well. As I read the first few lines, I felt very upset. It was my wife who saved me from getting into a rage; I was about to group-dial Jimmy [Page], John Paul [Jones] and Robert [Plant] and go, ‘What the hell…!’ but she said, ‘Read the rest.’ And I saw it wasn’t personal.
They wanted to free up the terminology. It was my wife who said, ‘Why don’t you call it ‘Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening’ — that way I could keep the logo the same. I said, ‘You’re a genius! That’s why I’ve been with you 30 years!'”
