Last week, late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham’s son Jason John Bonham had a recent interview with Howard Stern’s SiriusXM and revealed that Jimmy Page gave him cocaine when he was 16.
“Jimmy was the first one to ever give it to me. We got called to his room.
I was 16 at this point, and there was a woman on the floor with a collar on, meowing, and he had this grinder thing and he turned it over and he went, ‘Here you go,’ and I went, ‘Thanks.”

Today, John Bonham shared a recent statement on his web site and apologized Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page.
Here’s his statement:
“On or about 9 April 2019 I, Jason Bonham, gave an interview on the radio with Howard Stern. In that interview, I made certain untrue and derogatory statements concerning Mr. James Page of the legendary band Led Zeppelin.
I unconditionally retract all derogatory and defamatory comments relating to Mr. J Page that I made in that interview. In particular, it is wholly untrue that Mr. J Page offered me any illegal substances either when I was a minor or at all.
I apologize to Mr. Page, unreservedly, for making these unfounded and untrue comments about him.
Out of my long-held respect for Mr. Page I will make no further comments on the interview and I agree to make no further comments which Mr. Page might view as disparaging, either now or in the future.”
