Jason Bonham Can't Say What's Preventing Led Zeppelin Reunion

(hennemusic) Jason Bonham knew he had some very large shoes to fill when he stepped behind the drum kit for Led Zeppelin's 2007 reunion show at London's 02 Arena.

As for playing with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones again, Jason says "I'd be a fool if I said, no. At the New York press conference there were three questions in a row, asking 'Are you gonna do something again?' Robert didn't get the hump exactly, but he gets the hard end of the stick. So he said, 'Haven't you got another question about the film itself?' But I can see why they're asking. Because when you watch the film, we all look like we are having such a great time, it's no wonder people want to know if we're going to do it again"

Asked what's preventing a more prolonged Zeppelin reunion from happening, "I can't say. I don't know," explains the drummer. "Let's say, it's in the lap of the gods. Everybody is actually getting along great at the moment. I've learned in the last few years that the Internet is not your best mate, and there are a few doubters out there. So the film was a great thing to watch. I know I live in the shadow of the greatest drummer in the world, so it's nice to have a bit of sunshine now and again." more on this story
