Jason Bonham, son of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, had always performed with the name “Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience” – until Led Zeppelin recently asked him to change it to “Led Zeppelin Evening.”
“I got a letter from their attorney, who happens to be my attorney as well,” Bonham told Billboard. “As I read the first few lines, I felt very upset. It was my wife who saved me from getting into a rage; I was about to group-dial Jimmy [Page], John Paul [Jones] and Robert [Plant] and go, ‘What the hell…!’ but she said, ‘Read the rest.’ And I saw it wasn’t personal. They wanted to free up the terminology. It was my wife who said, ‘Why don’t you call it ‘JASON BONHAM’S LED ZEPPELIN EVENING’ — that way I could keep the logo the same. I said, ‘You’re a genius! That’s why I’ve been with you 30 years!'”
