How Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience Picked Songs
Bonham spoke with Ultimate Guitar.com recently about how he selected songs for the LZE show. "Well, for me, the song choices had to be everything that meant something to me," said Jason. "From my first memory of hearing Zeppelin which was "Your Time is Going to Come." The song is in the show, all my life from the first moment I ever heard that song it stood out to me, since as a child I was terrified of church organists (re the song intro). Other key early memories of Led Zeppelin for me was the black and white TV Danish TV special which included, 'Babe I'm Going to Leave You.' That was a key moment and I always thought 'Lemon Song' was a key moment for me from the early days of Zeppelin.
"And then also just when (Joey) said to me, what are your two favorite Led Zeppelin songs if there's two? And I said, well there is always going to be two, there's number one which is "Kashmir" and "The Rain Song." And while I didn't do "The Rain Song" on the last tour and this time around, I never really imagined this thing to be taken in as well as it has been to be honest. But since we're in this position now where we can go out there with our heads held high, I wanted to make sure that this time we have some of the later Zeppelin."
