Led Zeppelin reunion shows have been few and far between since drummer John Bonham's death in 1980. Led Zeppelin tributes, however, have helped carry the group's musical flame well into the 21st Century. But none is as authentic as Jason Bonham's "Led Zeppelin Experience."
Since 2010, Bonham has toured with his audiovisual ode to his late father. And on Monday, he'll be joined by Heart for a nostalgic night of rock 'n' roll in West Palm Beach.
"Jason is such a great guy. He's the ultimate Zeppelin archivist, and he's probably the one who knows more about Led Zeppelin than any of the Zeppelin guys do at the moment," Heart's Ann Wilson recently said in an interview with Rock Cellar.
Earlier this year at the Kennedy Center Honors awards, Bonham joined Heart for a rendition of "Stairway to Heaven" in front of the surviving members of Led Zeppelin -- John Paul Jones, Robert Plant, and Jimmy Page. All gave their blessings and Plant event shed a tear. Watch the video here.
