JASON BONHAM’S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE
Seattle 2010 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the WaMu Theater, Seattle, WA; November 27, 2010. Very good stereo soundboard.

The Led Zeppelin legacy continues…

Recently, a 2DVD/2CD set of the Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience surfaced as From East To West. The DVD featured the November 8, 2010 set at the Best Buy Theater, New York, while the CD showcased the November 27, 2010 Seattle show.

While Jason Bonham needs no introduction to the Led Zep oeuvre, he does spend the start of the show and in-between-songs banter to talk about his late father, John (also affectionately known as “Bonzo”).

This is what Jeffrey Clark Grossman of WENN.com commented on the November 8 New York show:

It was literally a drum solo with four sticks: Jason Bonham thundering through “Moby Dick,” from Led Zeppelin II, with his late father, John “Bonzo” Bonham, during the first set of Jason Bonham: The Led-Zeppelin Experience at New York’s Best Buy Theater on November 8. The elder Bonham appeared via audio and film clips of the drummer playing the song live with Led Zeppelin, while his son doubled and elaborated on the snare gunshots and kick-drum-and-tom bombs in synchronized real time…

“This is my story, what my dad and Led Zeppelin meant to me,” Jason said in a prerecorded overture, accompanied by family photos and films of the childhood and teenage Bonzo… But the night - which went the distance from “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” and “The Lemon Song” to “The Ocean” and “Kashmir” - is mostly about his dad’s titanic presence in that music and the giant absence created by his death. “Thank You” came with more home movies, while Jason, a keen student of Zeppelin concert bootlegs, revived and built on his father’s live improvisations on “How Many More Times” and the extended closing turbulence of “Dazed and Confused.”

“I got to play with my heroes,” Jason remarked about the ’07 concert, except “one of them wasn’t there.” In this show, he gets to have Bonzo in the house every night - a reunion, at last, of father and son.

The Seattle show is no less moving or explosive. Thanks to Evil Dr. Louie for sharing the tracks.

  4. I have a new found appreciation for Robert Plant, after he put the kibosh on a Zep reunion tour with Jason at the drums.

    Saw Jason in 1988 with Jimmy on the Outrider tour, wasn’t impressed. Saw Jason at the Zep reunion show, was not impressed. As great as that show was, it made it very clear Jason was the weak link.

    Bonzo’s chops were too far beyond Jason’s skill set.

  8. You can use different colors or turn stones in different direction so that
    it can cause very serious health issues. For instance, young children are more vulnerable to the harmful effects of black mold poisoning.
    The next step in getting rid of mold is a common
    symptom in such a case.

  11. I saw this show in So. Florida - probably on this same tour - and, sorry to say, I was disappointed. I don’t know what I expected but what I saw wasn’t it. No blame on the musicians; but it’s not Led Zeppelin. To be fair, though, I’ve never really liked “tribute” bands. For what it costs to see them, I’d just as soon hear a competent bar band do covers.

  12. I had a nearly the same impression of Jason at the Led Zeppelin 1988 reunion gig, but since then , and the Rock and Roll hall of fame show I think Jason has improved x100. I don’t know why there are two negative reviews. I have seen him twice , and he rocks hard with Led Zeppelin Experience. He has really, really studied hard on his Dads licks, moves, grooves and beat. I think he has really become his dads equal. I say to the two negative mold on bread reviews here, please take a second look. He really has improved. Now my question if Robert Plant decides he would like to something more with Jones and Page in the studio, I would like to see the creative mojo Jason could work from his own style. I am not sure anyone has put the question to Robert Plant about doing new material. I think he is put off by the idea of doing a golden oldies tour. I agree, as an artist it would seem stifling, and beating a dead horse so to speak. I would put it to PLANT, PAGE, JONES, and JASON BONHAM to try some new material and if rocks do a few live shows, but if it stinks, just go back to what you were doing before without any live shows. A fan can dream. Has any reporter ask Robert the question of not doing live shows, but trying to squeeze some more of their magic MOJO one more time in honor of their missing band mate, who before he died wanted to do a real hard rocking album. Peace and Rock
