Jason Bonham, the son of all-time iconic Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, dreams of doing a drum solo alongside a hologram of his father, reports LegendaryRockInterviews.com.
“That is my goal, my dream,” said the 47-year-old Led Zeppelin Experience drummer in the interview, who has been “talking to people about holograms” while currently on tour with Heart’s the Wilson Sisters.
“I am trying to work with the limited footage I have, to put it together in a way that works and is purposeful,” Bonham told Legendary Rock Interview, who reminds us that the quality of 1970s footage is not like today “where everybody can record everything with a phone or digital camera” with proficient results.
Talk of using 3-D digital technology to resurrect deceased music legends began to abound after a hologram of West-Coast rap luminary Tupac graced the stage at 2012’s Coachella Festival, Billboard reports, which mentions that there is “massive potential” for future hologram appearances made by such late stars as Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix.
“It’s imperative that I continue putting together the best shows and take it to the next level,” Bonham added in his Q&A with Legendary Rock Interviews.
