Robert plant long time coming - Robert Plant | Biography, News, Photos and Videos.

Joining Ann and Nancy Wilson for the Kennedy Centre performance on drums was Jason Bonham, the son of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham. Hailed by many as the greatest rock drummer of all time, Bonham died in 1980 at 32 years of age from asphyxiation as a result of excessive alcohol intake. Upon his death, it was decided among the remaining members that Led Zeppelin would not continue on as an entity without him. Despite collaborations among the members and a few performances throughout the decades, Led Zeppelin has not toured or recorded any new material. But when the members have played, their choice of drummer has primarily been Jason. His resemblance to his dad is eerie: beard, bulky frame, pork pie hat, explosive playing style, etc. So having Jason participate in the climactic number of the evening was an apt choice for the Wilson sisters to make.

Page and Jones were successful session musicians at this point, and when Jones got the Proby gig, he invited his fellow New Yardbirds along. A recent Dangerous Minds story quotes Jones as saying, “I was committed to doing all the arrangements for the album. As we were talking about rehearsing at the time, I thought it would be a handy source of income. I had to book a band anyway, so I thought I’d book everybody I knew.” The sessions started August 25, 1968, and led to an album that didn't cause much of a stir when it was released the following April.

But while Plant is still known to play Led Zep’s extensive back catalogue during his solo shows, he’s now admitted that a full band reunion is unlikely to occur again as he wants to “keep moving”.
