Deborah Bonham

Deborha Bonham Deborah Bonham is the younger sister of the late John Bonham, the world's greatest rock drummer. Deborah was only five when John joined Led Zeppelin, but this powerful introduction sparked in her the overwhelming desire the write and perform music.

She assembled a band of hand-picked musicians and achieved a major breakthrough in the USA on her recent debut tour with Jason Bonham, John's son. The tour began at the prestigious House Of The Blues in Los Angeles, a tribute memorial show for John enttled "A Night For Bonzo". The 4,000 capacity auditorium was sold out with people being turned away at the door.

"The Old Hyde", Deborah's recently completed album is a stunning array of blues mixed with ballads and rock, the title track being a ballad written about her brother John and her late father. Produced by Mo Foster (of Phil Collins, Jeff Beck and Van Morrison fame), the album features guest appearances from Mo Foster, Mick Fleetwood, Robert Plant guitarists Robbie Blunt and Dougie Boyle, Paul McCartney's guitarist Robbie McIntosh and John's son Jason Bonham plays powerhouse drums throughout. The album also features a live version of "The Battle Of Evermore"- a duet with Jason. In 2001 Deborah performed at The Steve Marriott Memoral Concert at The Astoria, London together with Humble Pie (the original line up), Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher and original Small Faces Ian Maclagen and Kenny Jones and Steve Ellis from Love Affair . Deborah also played Donnington rock and blues festival in 2001 to 20,000 which lead to her being invited to go to Germany with Scorpions guitarist Uli Jon Roth where she performed the Zep track "Since I've Been Loving You" with Uli to 10,000 delighted fans.

Earlier last year (2005) top U.S soul singer Ann Peebles heard Deb's version of her huge hit 'I Can't Stand The Rain' and was knocked out, and immediately, asked if Debs wanted to re-record the classic song as a duo. Whilst Ann was in the U.K for the session, she performed just three gigs, the Royal Festival Hall, London, The Borderline Club in London and....South Parade Pier Southsea for Barking Spider!!!!!

The Deborah Bonham Band were special guests at all three gigs, where they performed tracks from "The Old Hyde", followed by Ann performing some of her greatest hits and songs from her 'Acoustic Soul Tour', followed by the pair singing together on 'I Can't Stand The Rain' and others.
