A lot of talented children have probably been asked by a parent to entertain familyand friends, maybe in the living room, maybe sing a little, play an instrument. No bigdeal and a good way to get used to performing for others. But when Jason Bonhamwas a small child and got called in to entertain, the family friends he played hisdrums for could be anyone from Jimmy Page to some of the guys from the group BadCompany. That's what happens when your father is drummer John Bonham, one ofthe original members of the legendary rock band Led Zeppelin.
At the age of only five, Jason could play the drums, at least a scaled-down set ofthem, with skill. When he was 17 he was a member of the band Air Race.
