Jason Bonham Jamming with Page and Jones

Thanks to the Eddie Trunk site for this nugget: reports that drummer Jason Bonham spoke with the "JJ & Lynne" morning show in Detroit, Michigan this past Friday, August 22nd. During the interview, Bonham revealed that he is leaving Foreigner at the end of this month and that he has been jamming with Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones.

Bonham, who was born in England and now lives in Florida, said, "I've been over [to England] a couple of times. I've been working with Jimmy and John Paul and trying to do just do some new material and some writing. I don't know what it will be, but it will be something...At the moment, all I know is I have the great pleasure to go and jam with the two guys and start work on some material. When I get there, I never ask any questions. If I get a phone call to go and play, I enjoy every moment of it. Whatever it ends up as, to ever get a chance to jam with two people like that, it is a phenomenal thing for me; it's my life, it's what I've dreamed about doing."

Jason added, "My time with Foreigner is coming to an end. This is the first time I've talked about it. I leave at the end of this month . . . I'm looking forward to taking some time out to be with the family really. Since I moved to America I've been on the road, so my first priority is to go and watch my kids grow up, because they've grown up way to fast in the last four years."

Seems like thay are determined to do something with or without Plant. Good for them.

Hey, did you catch Page at the closing ceremony of the Olympics?
