Bonham is a heavy metal band founded by drummer Jason Bonham (b. 1967, England), the son of drummer John Bonham, who was a member of Led Zeppelin until his death in 1980. The younger Bonham had played with Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page in 1987, then backed Page along with Zeppelin singer Robert Plant and bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones at a Zeppelin reunion that was part of the celebration of Atlantic Records' 40th anniversary in 1988. He then formed the band Bonham with Ian Hatton (b. 1962, Kidderminster, Worcestershire, England; guitar), John Smithson (b. 1963, Sussex, England; keyboards, bass), and Daniel MacMaster (b. 1968, Barrie, Ontario, Canada; vocals). Their debut album, The Disregard of Timekeeping, was a gold-seller. ~ William Ruhlmann
