Son hails John Bonham's drumming

Jason Bonham has praised his late father's skills behind the drum kit.
Great deals on musical instruments

John Bonham's ability behind the drum kit has been commended by his son Jason.

Speaking to the Winnipeg Free Press, Jason said his late father played with a great deal of emotion.

He also hailed the Led Zeppelin legend for never playing a song in exactly the same way twice.

"Every night was different - he was never mediocre," Jason commented.

Jason is a well-known drummer in his own right and replaced his father at the 2007 Led Zeppelin reunion gig at the O2 Arena in London.

Electric guitar player Jimmy Page was keen to follow up this one-off performance with more shows alongside Bonham, vocalist Robert Plant and bass guitar player John Paul Jones.

However, Plant declined the opportunity and has since continued with his solo career.

Jones, meanwhile, has joined forces with Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme in Them Crooked Vultures.
