Bonham sat in for his late father, founding Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, at the show, which marked the group's first public appearance in 19 years. The performance was part of a tribute to the late Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun, who signed Led Zeppelin to its recording contract.
"It still ... kind of feels surreal, like it never really happened in some way," said Bonham, who's regular gig is playing drums for Foreigner. "If you'd have wanted a moment for everyone to get it right at one point, that was it. It's very, very special for me."
Led Zeppelin has only played three times since the elder Bonham's death in 1980 -- at the 1985 Live Aid concert in Philadelphia, at the 1988 Atlantic Records 40th anniversary concert and at the private Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 1995.
Despite myriad rumors about more shows, Bonham said that, "I wouldn't know. ... Only time will tell."
