Led Zeppelin Force Jason Bonham To Change Band Name

Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience recently changed its name to Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening, and it appears the directive came from Led Zeppelin themselves.

As Bonham – the son of Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, who died in 1980 – recently told KSHE 95, the original band plans to use “Led Zeppelin Experience” in a campaign marking its 50th anniversary this year.

“I was like, ‘Um, okay, but I need to keep the logo, JBLZE,’” Bonham said. “One, I have the tag on my car, and two, I have a huge backdrop that I paid for last year. For me it’s about the music. So the name of it — I just wanted to keep the logo. So I said, ‘I got it. Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening.’ I don’t know what they have planned, but I said, ‘Okay, I will clear the way so they can do what they wish.’”
