The Son Also Rises
When Jason Bonham, the son of legendary Led zeppelin drummer John Bonham, announced that he was going to tour with a reconstituted band, the blogosphere lit up with protests that he was capitalizing on his famous father.
Those fans could not have been more wrong. Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience performance at the Merriam Theatre, on November 6 was perfection. As one fan said, "When I closed my eyes, I thought I was listening to the real Zeppelin."
The four- stick duet of Zeppelin's “Moby Dick” that technology allowed Jason Bonham to play alongside with his father was the most emotional moment of many during the concert. The band performed Led Zeppelin classics such as "Stairway to Heaven", "Kashmir" and "Baby, I am going
to leave you."
Bonahm won the audience's heart by sharing his never before seen personal family photo album during the performance.The mostly male middle aged audience showed in its appreciation by standing for the last quarter of the concert.
