Jason started learning to play the drums at a young age, making one of his first appearances in the film “The Song Remains the Same” playing a small drum kit. At the age of 17, he joined his first band called Airrace. In 1985, he became a part of Virginia Wolf, helping the band record two albums while touring around the US as a supporting act. Three years later, he was given the chance to join Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page for the “Outrider” album, and to tour. He also performed with Led Zeppelin at the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary celebration.

A year later, Jason performed at the Moscow Music Peace Festival and then started the band Bonham, releasing the album “The Disregard of Timekeeping”. They had a hit single called “Wait for You”, but after the release of a second album called “Mad Hatter”, the band dissolved; one of the reasons for dissolving was because their second album wasn’t received very well. Jason then focused more on guest appearances, drumming for Paul Rodgers for “Muddy Water Blues: A Tribute to Muddy Waters”. He then performed with Slash before reforming his old band with a new name – Motherland; they released the album “Peace 4 Me” in 1994.

The following year, Jason joined Led Zeppelin’s induction into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, representing his father. He then put on a solo project called “In the Name of My Father – The Zepset” which was a charity effort. After touring with Debbie Bonham, he then performed for UFO and recorded with Joe Bonamassa. He appeared in the film “Rock Star” and then in the reality television program “Supergroup”. After a few more performances with other bands, Jason became part of the Led Zeppelin reunion concert in 2007 at the O2 Arena. Two years later, he formed the band called Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience. A few of his latest works include joining The Circle, California Breed, and touring around North America last 2015.

For his personal life, Jason has been married to Jan Chartens since 1990. It is known that Bonham endorses the DW Drums brand and Paiste cymbals. He also has his own signature line of drumsticks in collaboration with Pro-Mark. The sticks are noticeably large but short. It also has a symbol used by his father along with Jason’s signature.

#Quote
1Phil [Phil Collins] was Genesis's third drummer but he went on to become a key member. Singing drummers are rare but he also sold 100 million albums worldwide as a solo artist and is known for one of the most distinctive drum sounds ever - celebrated in that Cadbury's gorilla advert. My dad wasn't a big Genesis fan but he did have Duke which was one of their later albums. When Abacab came out I went straight out and bought it.
