Jason Bonham Now Denies Jimmy Page Cocaine Story

Jason Bonham has now retracted his previous comments about how Jimmy Page gave him cocaine at age 16.

Earlier this month, Bonham had told Howard Stern a story of how his first time with cocaine was when Led Zeppelin guitarist Page gave him cocaine in a hotel.

Bonham released a new statement on his website, in which he called the comments “untrue”:

“On or about 9 April 2019 I, Jason Bonham, gave an interview on radio with Howard Stern (the Interview). In that interview I made certain untrue and derogatory statements concerning Mr. James Page (aka Jimmy Page) of the legendary band Led Zeppelin. I unconditionally retract all derogatory and defamatory comments relating to Mr. J Page that I made in that interview. In particular it is wholly untrue that Mr. J Page offered me any illegal substances either when I was a minor or at all. I apologize to Mr. Page, unreservedly, for making these unfounded and untrue comments about him. Out of my long held respect for Mr. Page I will make no further comments on the Interview and I agree to make no further comments which Mr. Page might view as disparaging, either now or in the future.”
