Dave asks all the right questions; 'How did Led Zeppelin's O2 concert evolve?', 'Was there any chance that Robert Plant would be up for more shows?', 'Will the O2 concert be issued on DVD?' and 'What would you advise Jimmy Page to do now?' among them, and Curbishley doesn't duck his answers. I was impressed by BC's honesty throughout" - Dave Ling, Classic Rock

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has revealed he turned down the chance to join Led Zeppelin due to loyalty to his current band.

According to Hennemusic, Tyler told Howard Stern he accepted an invitation to play with Jimmy Page after Robert Plant had ruled out a longer return to Led Zeppelin, but refused the legendary guitarist's offer of joining the band on a more permanent basis.

"I went over and played with Led Zeppelin," he is quoted as saying. "I spoke to Jimmy Page's manager, Peter Mench, who's been a good friend of mine for ever. He said Robert wouldn't play with them again, and would I want to come over and jam with the guys? I went, 'Hello?' I went over and played. So not only have I sung to Paul McCartney, but I've played with Led Zeppelin. I'm in heaven."

However, Tyler explained how his commitment to Aerosmith made any hook-up impossible. "I looked Jimmy in the eyes and it came time for him to say, 'You want to write a record with me?' I went, 'No.' I'm in Aerosmith," he claimed. "He's in the biggest band in the world and I'm in a band like that. I have such an allegiance to my band and I love it so much."

Steven Tyler recently put Aerosmith's future in doubt once again by telling Rolling Stone he has been having trouble getting in touch with bandmate Joe Perry.

One of the last things Jason Bonham, son of late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, remembers his dad saying to him was, "You're going to get into the drums again, aren't you?"

A teenager utterly obsessed with motocross racing and about to sign a professional contract, the younger Bonham had other plans for his future. It was only after his father's untimely death that he began to follow in his footsteps.

"I lost him when he was my idol, and he still is," Bonham, whose Led Zeppelin Experience band finished touring North America last month, tells Spinner.

Although deep into other hobbies in his adolescent years, Bonham had been playing the drums since he was young but wasn't too fond of music until a year or two before his father's passing. However, he still recalls times spent going to see his favourite bands of the time with his dad.

"He took me to see the Police when they had just done a second album, so they were still quite fresh. I thought Sting was the coolest thing in the world," Bonham recalls.

"He managed to get me backstage and he threatened to punch Sting. It was hilarious. Dad stepped on his foot and he [Sting] was very cocky back then. He was the new young frontman and had that punk kind of attitude. Dad was probably a dinosaur to him, even at 32. I remember him saying, 'Hey man, don't step on my blue suede shoes.' My dad said, 'I'll step on your f---ing head in a minute.'"

Bonham and his other musical project Black Country Communion released their self-titled debut LP last September, however this past tour playing Zeppelin songs alongside guitarist Tony Catania, bassist Michael Devin, keyboardist Stephen LeBlanc and vocalist James Dylan saw him, as he says, "playing better than I've ever played in my life."



No stranger to critics, Bonham says he's always reading music blogs looking for negative reviews or people knocking him for playing songs by his father's former band. To naysayers he offers this: "It's my lifeline to my dad."

Previously, he revealed Kashmir is his favorite Zeppelin song to play, and says Physical Graffiti, the 1975 album that features the track, is also his favorite Zep record.

"I just love the diversity of the songs," he says. "One after another, they're all fantastic. Presence is also a close second for me because it's one of most underrated ones they did. 'Tea for One,' you put that on at full blast in a dark room, the solo that kicks in, you're transformed. I just got back into that again, and I was like, 'Wow!'"
