The son of late Zeppelin drummer John Bonham last performed with the surviving members of Zeppelin in London in 2007. In a recent interview, the younger Bonham said he tries to put the idea to the back of his mind because that worked once before. He explained, "Back in 2004 I finally let go. I said to myself, 'Don't ever think it's gonna happen. Let it go. Don't have that little flutter of hope in your stomach or whatever.' And then when I let it go what happens? I get a call in 2007. So all I'll say is 'I'm gonna let it go.' As far as I know, nothing's gonna happen, but if I let it go, you never know."
