Jason aimerait rendre à son père un hommage en le faisant apparaître durant ses concerts grâce à un hologramme.
Jason Bonham, whose Led Zeppelin Experience pays tribute to his late father’s legendary band, is currently touring North America with Heart (with whom Bonham and his band join forces to play a set of Zeppelin classics every night). However, the heir to John Bonham’s drum throne is looking ahead to a time when he might join his father on the road. If, that is, he can work out a few technological kinks.
Yes, Jason Bonham wants to bring John back to life as a hologram.
“It’s imperative that I continue putting together the best shows and take it to the next level,” Bonham said. “I’m talking to people about holograms and my dream is to do the hologram drum solo with dad next to me.”
But according to Bonham the Younger, collecting sufficient footage might prove to be difficult.
“These guys were operating in the 1970s and it’s not at all like it is today where everybody can record everything with a phone or digital camera,” Bonham explained. “Back in those days if you had a camera that could record video you were well off and to be able to be proficient enough to edit or work with it or process it and release it was a whole other matter. It wasn’t as instant of a thing as it is now. I am trying to work with the limited footage I have, to put it together in a way that works and is purposeful.”
