Bonham – A Great British-Canadian Hard Rock Band

Bonham was a great British-Canadian hard rock band formed around Jason Bonham, the song of legendary and well known Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham. The band was formed in 1988 and was active until 1992. After a break of two years, the band was active once more in 1994, then inactive, and, once again, active for the last time between 1995 and 1997.

Throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, the band released four studio albums under different monikers. They released their debut and most successful (in both commercial and critical acclaim regards) studio album entitled ‘The Disregard of Timekeeping‘ in 1989. The album is a mixture of hard rock, heavy metal, and glam metal and was produced by Bob Ezrin, who had previously collaborated with Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, and Kiss.

Several years after, namely in 1992, the band released its second moderately-successful studio album entitled ‘Mad Hatter‘. Subsequently, after a change of name as ‘Motherland’, the band released ‘Peace 4 Me’ in 1994. After yet another change of name, the band released its last studio album in 1997, titled ‘When You See The Sun’.

For the band’s first two studio albums, the lead vocalist was the greatly talented late Daniel MacMaster. The other two core line-up members were Ian Hutton (lead and rhythm guitars as well as backing vocals) and John Smithson (bass guitar, violin, keyboards as well as backing vocals).
