The latest late music icon to possibly return to the stage as a hologram is Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, who could receive the treatment by way of son Jason Bonham. The younger Bonham, who spearheads the Led Zeppelin Experience tour, says he'd be interested in playing alongside Dad during his current opening act for Heart.
"It's important to me to have something in addition to the music, that was the whole point of it," Bonham told Legendary Rock Interviews. "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. 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 Dad next to me."
The elder Bonham, who Rolling Stone readers named the best drummer of all time in 2011, died in 1980. Jason took his place onstage during Led Zeppelin's 2007 reunion gig at London's O2 Arena. Now he may join Tupac Shakur, who ignited the craze at 2012's Coachella, and several other digital resurrections (Ol' Dirty Bastard, Elvis, Aaliyah, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes) in yet another potential musical hologram.
