John Bonham's son Jason has given hope to Led Zeppelin fans by declaring his father's band will perform together again one day.

The legendary rockers parted ways in 1980 following the death of percussionist John, who passed away aged 32 after a drinking binge, but they returned for a performance in London in 2007 with John's son Jason on drums.

Fans' hopes of another reunion have repeatedly been dashed by bandmembers Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, but Jason remains convinced the band will return.

"In my heart of hearts... I do believe we will play together again," he tells Vanyaland.com. "It remains to be seen if it will be in public or privately, but I do think we will play again."

Jason will be busy in 2016 as he has been hired to work with Phil Collins as the former Genesis frontman makes a return to music.

"We got together for three weeks and I had an amazing time," Jason told Billboard of his work with Phil. "It was an honour to be chosen by one of my real heroes."
