Jason Bonham writing with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones

Jason Bonham, son of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, has stated to rock station 94.7 WCSX that he will be an ex-member of Foreigner in September but that he has also been writing new material with Led Zeppelin members Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones.

“I’ve been over [to England] a couple of times,” Bonham said. “I’ve been working with Jimmy and John Paul and trying to do … some new material and some writing. I don’t know what it will be, but it will be something. At the moment, all I know is I have the great pleasure to go and jam with the two guys and start work on some material. When I get there, I never ask any questions. If I get a phone call to go and play, I enjoy every moment of it. Whatever it ends up as, to ever get a chance to jam with two people like that, it is a phenomenal thing for me. It’s my life. It’s what I’ve dreamed about doing.”

Bonham alongside Page and Jones were writing new Led Zeppelin material after they performed a special one-off gig at the O2 in London in 2007 but Robert Plant killed off any hope of a new Led Zeppelin album when he said he wasn’t interested in recording a new album.
