"Jason Bonham was almost sick before the show..."


reports that Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin experience was almost too much for him. As we all know, the drummer was standing in for his legendary father who died in 1980, but just prior to the gig he had an attack of the nerves.

According to his Foreigner bandmate Mick Jones, he wasn´t looking too healthy and was almost sick before he went on stage. Jones said: "It's been so emotional for Jason. He was fine up until 45 minutes before the show. He will be retching (vomiting) before he goes on."
