That’s That

Jason Bonham has honored Led Zeppelin’s legacy for years, even playing alongside his father’s bandmates. And he goes on tour with his band called Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience. But because Led Zeppelin’s 50th anniversary is almost here and we are seeing releases left and right, they have plans to use “Led Zeppelin Experience” as part of the campaign.

Thus, according to Jason, he was forced to change the name to Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening.

“They have plans for the terminology ‘Led Zeppelin Experience.’ And I was like, ‘Um, okay, but I need to keep the logo, JBLZE.’ One, I have the [custom license plate] tag on my car, and two, I have a huge backdrop that I paid for last year. For me, it’s about the music. So the name of it — I just wanted to keep the logo. So I said, ‘I got it. Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening.’ I don’t know what they have planned, but I said, ‘Okay, I will clear the way so they can do what they wish.'” – Jason Bonham

Aside from touring with his band, he’s also joining Foreigner and Whitesnake for the “Juke Box Heroes” tour. He’s a busy guy for sure.
