In 1964, Bonham joined his first band, Terry Webb and the Spiders, meeting his future wife Pat Phillips at a dance in Kidderminster. They married in 1965, when he was 17.
John and Pat had two children, son Jason Bonham (b. 15th July 1966) and daughter Zoë Bonham.

In 'The Song Remains the Same' John Bonham was shot with his wife Pat and son Jason Bonham on their country estate, Old Hyde Farm in Worcestershire. It is interesting to note that part of his fantasy includes him spending time at home with his family. Bonham was known for falling into deep depressions while on tour away from his family. The sequences were filmed in 1973, but the film was released three years later, on 1976. Thematic music: "Moby Dick".
