Drummer JASON BONHAM Talks About Playing With FOREIGNER –

Wade Tatangelo of the Bradenton Herald has issued the following report:

Plenty of men closing in on the age of 40 have a special memory tied to a FOREIGNER tune. Drummer Jason Bonham is one of them. The band he recently joined has held a special place in his heart for decades.

“My first band, we wanted to be like FOREIGNER and JOURNEY,” Bonham said from his home in Boca Raton. “Then I was signed to Atlantic by FOREIGNER‘s current manager when I was 16 years old.”

Bonham, who retains the accent of his native England, laughed sheepishly.
“Actually, the FOREIGNER connection goes even deeper,” he confessed. “My wedding song 15 years ago was ‘Waiting for a Girl Like You’. ”

Incidentally, the said matrimony ceremony marked one of the extremely rare LED ZEPPELIN reunions that have occurred since the untimely death in 1980 of Jason Bonham‘s father, famed ZEPPELIN drummer John Bonham.

The first ZEPPELIN reunion was at the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary Party in 1988. Bonham joined Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones on stage in front of a sold-out crowd at Madison Square Garden. Millions of television viewers from around the world also witnessed the event.

“It was uncanny, Jason had every nuance of his father’s approach to the group’s music, it was as though we’d played together for years,” Jones said after the show, according to http://www.Led-Zeppelin.com.
