Drummer John Bonham To Appear On Stage Again
Legendary Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham is poised to appear on stage again 33 years after his death — as a hologram.
The rocker’s son Jason Bonham, 47 — also a drummer — revealed he is in talks with special effects wizards so they can do a duet.
As part of his tribute act the Led Zeppelin Experience, he already drums along to videos of his dad, who provided the beat for classic albums such as Houses Of The Holy.
Jason, who has drummed for the real Led Zep, said he now wanted to take it to the “next level”. He confirmed: “I’m talking to people about holograms.
“My dream is to do a drum solo with Dad next to me.”
Holograms are fast becoming the hottest new gimmick in music and shows.
The new Cirque Du Soleil Michael Jackson One show features the late King of Pop dancing around the stage. It proved so realistic fans burst into tears.
Last year rapper Tupak Shakur — who was shot dead in 1996 — took the stage with bands at the Coachella festival in California.
Queen have even considered bringing Freddie Mercury “back to life” — and surviving members of The Who talked about using the technology on their Quadrophenia tour.
In a recent survey rock fans listed stars like Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and Jim Morrison as their dream reincarnations.
