luvlz2 Posted March 22 Share Posted March 22 Jason Bonham has discussed in a new podcast interview finding unmarked reel-to-reel tapes in his father John Bonham's belongings and recalled how Led Zeppelin's 2007 reunion came about. Speaking to They Vinyl Guide podcast, Bonham said he hasn't yet played any of the unmarked tapes which be unreleased studio mixes of Led Zeppelin songs. "Believe it or not, Dad didn't like to play at all at home," Bonham told podcast host Nate Goyer. "He has no recording equipment. We've got his old Revox two track and that was literally just to be able to play mixes when he came back from the studio." "I found a box of tapes, reel to reels, at home last time I was there," Bonham said. "But I need to get the machine up and running and hook it up, which...I will save that for an episode for YouTube, like 'Let's get this thing up and running. Let's find out if we've got anything that hasn't even been released yet.' Because they're all unmarked, that's the best of it. Or they just deteriorated." "They might jus...you put them in the machine and it just erases them the moment you press start. I think they has to do that when they were doing the Knebworth mixing. They has to bake the... they only had the U-matic tapes and they had to bake the tapes to preserve what was on there. Imagine all the multitracks they've got, from the one-inch to the two-inch, sitting in Jimmy's facility or whatever." https://ledzepnews.com/2023/03/21/jason-bonham-said-he-found-unmarked-tapes-in-his-fathers-belongings-and-recalled-the-2007-led-zeppelin-reunion/?fbclid=IwAR0_VnTUFtq7agHQ4vgPfZN-Poc3WkEQ1lHs2xyZggD_qCLhC4yeV0zy9wA https://www.thevinylguide.com/episodes/ep383-celebrating-led-zeppelin-with-jason-bonham Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
