(Classic Rock) Jason Bonham has bowed out of California Breed, the band he formed with Glenn Hughes, ahead of their debut UK tour. And although it's not confirmed the move is permanent, the drummer has suggested he won't be back.
Former Queens Of The Stone Age sticksman Joey Castillo has been named as his replacement "for all upcoming dates." The three-piece, which also includes young guitarist Andrew Watt, add in a statement: "It became clear that Jason's professional commitments would prevent him from being able to tour with the band."
Bonham is currently touring the US with Sammy Hagar and he's been involved in tentative rehearsals with Phil Collins. The son of Led Zeppelin icon John Bonham says via Facebook: "I love those guys - but it wasn't going to work out for me. I will support them as I love the band I helped create, and Joey is great. Good luck, guys." more on this story
