Jason Bonham Says 'You Never Know' With Led Zeppelin

It's 40 Years Since 'Stairway To Heaven' Was Released, Yet The Legendary Track Is Still A Classic Jason Bonham Says 'You Never Know' With Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin was a rock band of the 60s who earned the title of the "greatest rock band of all-time". And it's been 40 years since the rock-icons released the greatest rock album of all time, Led Zeppelin IV - a powerhouse album with legendary tracks like "Black Dog", "When The Levee Breaks" and the ultimate rock classic Stairway to Heaven  which cemented them as superstars. The band consisted of guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, John Paul Jones on bass and keyboards, and John Bonham on drums.

The band continued to produce heavy rock music until 1980 when John Bonham suddenly died. The group disbanded and the remaining band-members pursued solo careers. However, in 2007, they reunited for a one-off show at London's O2 arena with John Bonham's son, Jason, playing the drums in his father's place. At the time, interest was shown in maybe a world tour, but no firm plans were set.

Recently Jason was interviewed by The Sun in England. When asked if anything was in the pipeline, Jason replied,"I haven't spoken to Robert [Plant] for about six months but he is really enjoying himself. For me you can never say never. If you ask me today is it going to happen immediately, well no, there is no talk of it." 

He also said that there were no plans for any more shows, nor would they be in contention for the opening ceremony for the 2012 Olympic Games in London - despite the rumours. Bonham continued: "But if you said to me in 2007 I would play with Led Zeppelin in December that year I would say you're nuts, so you never know." Just imagine "Stairway to Heaven" being played at the Olympics! Wouldn't that be incredible?

Currently, Bonham is touring as part of rock band Black Country Communion.
