The son of late Led Zeppelin drummer JOHN BONHAM had to fight back tears when the group reformed for rehearsals in June (07) because he was sitting in his dad's seat. Jason Bonham admits the get together was charged with emotion, but it hit him harder than bandmates Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones. Bonham, who is currently a member of rockers Foreigner, took time out to mark the historical reunion calling it "a real lump in the throat (moment)". The 41-year-old drummer feared the rehearsals would be a disaster at first, as the group's founders tried to find their old sound - but he was wrong. He recalls, "I didn't think there would be an instant sound. I thought, 'It's going to take some time.'" But, as soon as they started playing the classic No Quarter, it was as if they had never been apart. He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "When the riff came in, there was this look that went around. It was brilliant." And the band were so fired up after the run-through of their next song, Kashmir, Page and Plant insisted on embracing. Bonham reveals, "Jimmy said, 'Can you give me a hug?' and Robert shouted, 'Yeah, sons of thunder!'" Led Zeppelin reformed to headline an upcoming tribute concert for late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun in London next month (10Dec07). But the rockers are also rumoured to be planning a U.S. tour with The Cult in 2008.
