Jason Bonham hopes to take to the stage with his late father John during his Led Zeppelin Experience shows by creating a hologram of the legendary drummer.
Bonham stood in for his father during Led Zeppelin’s one-night reunion in 2007 and is currently touring the U.S. performing the rock supergroup’s back catalogue.
The Led Zeppelin Experience already features on-screen images of the pair before John’s death in 1980, while another segment involves Jason drumming along to video recordings of a solo by John.
Now Bonham wants to take his ‘duets’ a step further and fulfil his dream of playing onstage alongside his father with the help of new technology.
He tells Legendary Rock Interviews, “It’s important to me to have something in addition to the music – that was the whole point of it. It’s imperative that I continue putting together the best shows and take it to the next level. I’m talking to people about holograms, and my dream is to do a drum solo with Dad next to me. That’s my goal, my dream.”
THE HOLD UP:
Bonham is struggling to find appropriate footage, adding, “The biggest challenge… is finding original video material to work with. These guys were operating in the 1970s; it’s not like it is today where everybody can record everything with a phone or digital camera.
“Back in those days, if you had a camera that could record video, you were well off. To edit, work with it, process it and release it was a whole other matter. I’m trying to work with the limited footage I have, to put it together in a way that works and is purposeful.”

A man at a Golden Corral took a video of what looks like a good portion of the restaurant’s buffet hidden outside, next to a fly infested dumpster, during a food inspection.
The man in the video claims the huge trays of food, including uncooked burger patties and baby back ribs, were wheeled back by the dumpster to hide it from health inspectors.
Golden Corral says the manager of the store was fired and the food in question was never served to customers.
Missouri calls itself the “Show Me” state, but there’s only so much one woman was allowed to show at a water park.
When Madelyn Sheaffer went to the Adventure Oasis Water Park in Independence, Mo., on Tuesday, the last thing she expected was that her bathing suit would cause fireworks.
Sheaffer, 43, said after she got into the pool with her niece and nephew, two teenage employees approached her and told her to put on shorts because her bottoms were too small.
A supervisor backed up their decree by saying she needed to cover up or leave the park.
Would you tell her to leave?
