John Bonham Hologram – Horns Up or Thumbs Down?

Jason Bonham, the son of legendary Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, has revealed that he hopes to add a duet with a hologram version of his father to the stage show of his current Zep tribute band. 

As he tells Legendary Rock Interviews, “I’m talking to people about holograms, and my dream is to do a drum solo with Dad next to me. That’s my goal, my dream.” This technology made big news last year when an artificial version of rapper Tupac Shakur appeared at the Coachella festival.

Assuming the right vintage concert footage can be found, it seems pretty clear that this can be done, so the question shifts to should it be done? Do you want to see hologram versions of deceased rock stars like John Bonham during live concerts? Would this be a gimmicky attempt at self-promotion, as some consider Bonham’s questionable ‘Black Dog’ televison commercial, or a touching tribute from a talented drummer to his beloved father? Vote below, and tell us exactly what you think in the comments section below.
