Led Zeppelin's John Bonham to appear as hologram in son's tribute band?

Jason Bonham says he wants a digital cameo with his dad

Led Zeppelin's John Bonham to appear as hologram in son's tribute band?
Late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham could appear as a hologram in his son Jason Bonham's tribute band.

Jason, who joined Led Zeppelin for their last proper show at London's O2 Arena in December 2007, told Legendary Rock Interviews that he had been speaking to special effects experts about the possibility of duetting with his father in his group The Led Zeppelin Experience.

"When I first started doing this I was working with some of the people behind some of the biggest tribute tours like Pink Floyd Experience, The Beatles and now I'm doing it," he said. "It's imperative that I continue putting together the best shows and take it to the next level. I'm talking to people about holograms and my dream is to do the hologram drum solo with my dad next to me."

Last month, Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones quashed hopes that the rock behemoths could play a series of reunion shows in the near future as he is too busy writing an opera. Singer Robert Plant had hinted in February that he would be open to the idea of Zeppelin reuniting next year, but Jones said a tour was unlikely as "2014 is full of opera for me at the moment".

Although the band have not performed together since their London O2 Arena gig in 2007, a film of the concert titled Celebration Day was released on DVD in November 2012 following a brief run in cinemas. Earlier this month, meanwhile, a guitar previously played by Jimmy Page was sold for over £25,000 at auction. The Martin 'Birthday Special 2007' acoustic guitar was sold as part of the entertainment memorabilia sale at Bonhams Knightsbridge, with other items under the hammer including a set of David Bowie's handwritten lyrics to 'The Jean Genie' and a lock of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger's hair.
