Jason Bonham (born July 15, 1966) is an English drummer and son of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.

Bonham was born in the town of Dudley, Worcestershire. He first began playing drums at the age of four, and appeared with his father in the film The Song Remains the Same, drumming on a scaled-down kit. At 17, he joined his first band, Airrace. In 1985, he joined Virginia Wolf, making two albums and touring the U.S. supporting The Firm.

In 1988, Bonham joined former Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page for his Outrider album and tour. In May of the same year, Bonham appeared with the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin for a performance at Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary concert in New York. John Paul Jones believes Bonham's performance was outstanding that night.
