  1. I borrowed the DVD for 02 years ago from the local library. I am certain it had an extras section that had Jason playing along to a video projection of Moby Dick from Madison Square Gardens. I have never been able to find the concert DVD again with this in it. Don't know if it was a special edition or what, does the current release have this bit deleted, or have I mistaken it from something else? Maybe the Australian release was edited? Thanks.
  2. Vanyaland has a pretty wide ranging interview with Jason today. He talks about playing with Jimmy on the Outrider tour and says that "In my heart of hearts" that he thinks Zep will perform again.
  3. Wanted to let everyone know that Doug Henthorn just released a new CD of his original music titled Cold Medicine. For those that don't know, Doug and Jason Bonham recorded and played together in the Healing Sixes for 4 years. Doug is also the singer on Joe Bonamassa's excellent Zep cover of Tea For One. CDBaby: Cold Medicine is Doug Henthorn's first solo effort after founding and fronting the band Healing Sixes for nearly 15 years. Recorded over the course of a three year period, Doug put together a concise and efficient record. "I have a great love for album rock and put this together with that in mind. I didn't want a bunch of songs thrown together just to fill up slots on a CD. Cold Medicine is put together to be listened to from beginning to end in one sitting. That's why I feel comfortable with just seven tracks. It's something that the listener can listen to from beginning to end without giving up an entire afternoon." The release is available on itunes, CDBaby, and on Doug's website www.doughenthorn.com in both download and CD formats. Give it a listen - it really is excellent stuff from a voice that should be more widely heard!
  4. So the hallowed performance space that is the 120-year-old Massey Hall is getting some much needed renovations. So many great artists have graced her stage and infused the hall with the memories and spirit of their performances, including Jason, Jonesy, and Robert. I've seen (among other shows) Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Jonesy and Robert there - a small but unforgettable list. Hopefully these much needed changes will enable her to be the shrine for another 120 years of legendary concerts. It will happen in two stages, the first of which is underway, and it will not affect shows. The second stage, however, will see Massey Hall's doors closed for between 18 - 24 months. The details are in the following articles. Some lowlights for me include getting rid of the exterior iron fire escape stairs (which I think add character to and maintain the iconic look), and highlights include more bathrooms (seriously, having to go all the way down to the basement??) and stained glass windows being restored and shown in full glory. Tech crews will no doubt appreciate a new proper loading dock, too. Whatever they do, may they be cursed if they damage the acoustics of this space. That and may the ghosts still feel welcome and at home (you think I'm joking...) Massey Hall launches first phase of $135 million revitalization project By Sean Mallen Reporter Global News TORONTO – The federal and provincial government announced Monday an investment of $8 million each for the first phase of the Massey Hall Revitalization Project. To be completed by 2019, the renovation will include the demolition of the Albert Building just to the south and the creation of new, modernized backstage spaces, along with new technical and production facilities and the hall’s first ever loading dock. Mayor John Tory said Toronto has not always done well in preserving its heritage structures.The seven-year $135 million private and publicly funded revitalization plan was approved by city council in 2013. “I am delighted to see this project move forward,” said Finance Minister Joe Oliver, who is also the federal minister responsible for the Greater Toronto Area. He noted that Massey Hall has not only hosted concerts by artists such as Gordon Lightfoot and Oscar Peterson, but also boxing matches, typing contests and chess tournaments. Michael Coteau, Ontario’s Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, recalled seeing his first hip hop concert at Massey Hall as a teenager 20 years ago. “It’s about bringing Massey Hall into the 21st Century,” he said in announcing the provincial government’s contribution. Toronto-based MOD Developments Inc. had announced in January 2012 the donation of 4,804 square feet of land immediately to the south of Massey Hall for the expansion. Officials say Massey Hall, which first opened in 1894, will remain open to the public for concerts and events during the first phase of the project. However, the building will be closed for a period of 18 to 24 months during the second phase as both the interior and exterior is restored, adding new and accessible space for both artists and patrons. http://globalnews.ca/news/1844700/mayor-tory-to-attend-launch-of-massey-hall-revitalization-project/
  5. Sunday, December 2, 2012 Led Zeppelin: Jason Bonham discusses why reunion tour didn’t happen including Bonham interview video clip “Robert and I spoke very long and hard about this,” Jason explained. “And there’s other reasons, and I respect him for that. He told me.” “I’ll share one thing he said,” continued Bonham. “’It doesn’t matter how great you are on drums, Jason, I love you to bits and you play absolutely amazing. But John was the drummer in Led Zeppelin and John was part of me, Jimmy and John Paul. We shared something very, very special.’ He said ‘I struggle sometimes just thinking about trying to create some magic again. He’s not there. He was a very, very dear friend of mine that he said ‘I miss every day.’” [ I apologize if this was posted elsewhere already ]
  6. On my way home from the Heart/Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience concert at the Greek Theatre in Hollywood tonight. Definitely a much more rocking show than the last time I saw Heart. In 1981 I went to the Texxas Jam at the Houston Astrodome with some Army buddies. The lineup was, from beginning to end, The Records(or was it the Rockets?), Foghat, Blue Öyster Cult, Heart, REO Speedwagon. Coming after BÖC, Heart needed to rock. Instead they played a set heavy on mellow, weepy power ballads. They bored me to tears so much, that I swore off them from that point on...never bought another album from them or saw a Heart concert again. When even REO Speedwagon makes you look wimpy, you know you have problems. But with the great performance at the Kennedy Center Honors and good reviews from friends who had seen Heart recently, I decided now was the time to end my Heart embargo and give them another chance. Another chance to see Jason Bonham was just a little bonus. Thanks to traffic, I arrived late and missed half of Jason's set. The songs I did hear were "Nobody's Fault But Mine", "The Ocean", "When the Levee Breaks", and "Whole Lotta Love". I had seen them before and they sounded about the same...with the same positives and negatives as before. "When the Levee Breaks" was the highlight. They cut out the middle theremin part of WLL...probably due to time constraints. There's a 10:30pm curfew at the Greek on weeknights. Jason's set ended around 8:25. At about 8:40-8:45pm. Heart began their set with "Barracuda". "Heartless" followed after that, and they continued going thru the nuggets of the Heart songbook..."Magic Man", "Kick It Out", "Dog & Butterfly". Yes, they played some of those sappy 80s songs, but they closed their set with a fine "Crazy on You". It was now 9:50pm and time for the moment everyone was waiting for...the encore of Led Zeppelin songs with Jason Bonham et al. Here is the complete encore in order: 1. Battle of Evermore 2. Misty Mountain Hop 3. Immigrant Song 4. Rain Song 5. Kashmir 6. Stairway to Heaven Suffice to say, they knocked it out of the park. Ann Wilson may not look like she did in 1976, but she can still belt out a tune. She still has that voice. That's the edge that Heart has over any others who try to do Led Zeppelin songs, including the myriad of LZ tribute bands out there: invariably the weakness of these bands is the vocals and Heart's Ann Wilson trumps all other vocalists when it comes to singing Led Zeppelin. So yes, I give a thumbs up to the show and yes, there were some emotional moments where I felt my eyes getting moist. I can wholeheartedly recommend you see this tour pairing when it hits your town. That's all for now...I need sleep. Three concerts in three nights...with a fourth one Friday.
  7. Doug Henthorn is the vocalist in Joe Bonamassa's excellent version of Tea For One from his You and Me album. As Doug is an exceptional vocalist / guitarist in his own right, I wanted to put some information out here for everyone to check out. Doug was the leader of the Healing Sixes for 15 years, until the disbanding of that band in Feb. 2102. During that time, the Healing Sixes released 4 excellent albums (all still available on itunes and Amazon). Their 2nd release, Enormosound, also featured Jason Bonham on drums. Since the end of Healing Sixes, Doug has been doing background vocal work for such artists as Joe Bonamassa and John Hiatt - while also writing new songs for his planned first solo album. Here is a link to Doug's recent performance of Tea For One with Joe Bonamassa at the Hammersmith Apollo on Mar 28, 2013. If you enjoy what you see here, or are already a fan of Doug's work, please go to his Facebook page and/or his Website and let him know! Doug's certainly a talent that deserves a wider audience. On Facebook, you can find him at https://www.facebook.com/thehenthornllc His current website is at http://www.doughenthorn.com/ The Healing Sixes website is at http://www.healingsixes.com/ Here are a few more videos for you to enjoy. Thanks everyone, Enjoy!
  8. I don't know how many people have seen this video, or if this has been posted before, but I thought this was a cool video. It warmed my heart to see Jason give his father the fitting tribute he deserves. The part from 3:46-3:53 is funny, cool, and heartwarming all at the same time. That particular part seemed like Jason's way of saying, "Yep. That was my Dad. He was/is the best. I can't touch him here, so why even try." R.I.P. John Bonham
  9. Bonzo's Birthday Bash (Bonzo Bash)

    Long Live Bonzo! For those that are not aware of drummer extraordinaire Brian Tichy's brainchild here is the video interview with iDrum magazine's Ian Croft in which Brian details how our fantastic show/event got its start and since that show September 25, 2010, 3 others have occurred.It is now called "Bonzo's Birthday Bash" and most just refer to it as Bonzo Bash now. The show is Executive Produced by Joe Sutton and I am very proud to have been added as producer to the last show. The poster for the most recent show is attached and many many many photos of all who have played this amazing event can be found at our highly active Facebook page https://www.facebook...zosBirthdayBash which we'd love all Bonzonians to come be part of. Here is the press release so you can see just how much heart and soul Brian Tichy puts into this tribute to John Henry Bonham in a fashion unmatched by any other who is not his blood*. BONZO'S BIRTHDAY BASH! SPECIAL GUESTS OF GROOVE ADDED! A Tribute Concert To John Henry Bonham Of Led Zeppelin Rock's top drummers play tribute to rock's greatest drummer! Thursday, May 31st, House Of Blues, Los Angeles Bonzo's Birthday Bash just keeps getting bigger! More than 20 of rock's top drummers, a great opening acoustic band, a great house band, extremely charismatic guest musicians and speakers are all there ready to go! But now, on top of that, we welcome aboard Poison drummer Rikki Rockett as well as Lynch Mob frontman Oni Logan who will both be joining in on the fun! Also adding his thoughts and stories to the event will be Snow drummer Stephen Quadros, aka the "Fight Professor", who is one of mixed martial arts' most respected commentators. Stephen will be speaking in between drummers as will be legendary producer/engineer Eddie Kramer, who is also showcasing his private photos of his time with Bonzo and Led Zeppelin. Bonzo's Birthday Bash is now also offering 2 VIP packages packed with goods every Bonzo fan would live to have. The "Whole Lotta Love" and "Kashmir" packages are available here: http://www.briantichy.com/bonzo.php Singing with opening acoustic act "The Calm Before The Storm" featuring guitar master Mitch Perry, ex-Ozzy bassist Phil Soussan, and Quiet Riot bassist Chuck Wright will be Chas West (Bonham/Lynch Mob/ The Moby Dicks), Shaun Williamson and Lorraine Lewis (Femme Fatale). After 3 groundbreaking tribute shows entitled "Bonzo: The Groove Remains The Same" and a collective passion and respect amongst all the participating drummers, past and present to John Bonham, the greatest rock drummer ever, Brian Tichy and Joe Sutton have decided to go for it once again! Tichy says, "It is a relatively simple concept. When I first thought of this, the idea seemed too cool NOT to try. You get a John Bonham replica drum set, complete with gong and timpani, up front, center stage, and have each drummer perform their favorite Led Zeppelin song with a house band (The Moby Dicks). There are no rules other than to have fun putting your own groove and character into your song choice! It's such a unique night, seeing how all these great drummers approach the same drum set making it their own! And 'The Moby Dicks' hold their own as a true force to be reckoned with! We have structure, and within the structure there is total freedom, making the pace and vibe of this show somewhere between a backyard party and a.... backyard party with a killer band playing Led Zep songs! Haha! 'The Groove Remains The Same' has morphed into 'Bonzo's Birthday Bash', as we celebrate John Bonham's birthday! Tichy went as far as to say, "Bonzo's Birthday Bash is now even more so the equivalent of a gong on fire on top of an erupting volcano next to a wildebeest migration complete with lurking, starving crocodiles and a fireworks finale across the river that not even the Olympics can rival!!" John Bonham deserves it! His right foot alone deserves it!! Bonzo's Birthday Bash is the ultimate tribute show and that's that! So get a ticket, get a good seat, grab a now classic "Bonzo Burger" and get into the festivities! Tickets available at www.hob.com Tickets are $25 and $30 day of show Doors at 8pm.
