Happy Birthday John Paul Jones

Today is the legendary bassist, keyboardist, producer, multi-instrumentalist John Paul Jones 66th birthday. Yes his biggest claim to fame is being one of the four original members of Led Zeppelin. Some may claim he was underrated but there is no denying he is a man of multiple talents.

Here he is with Led Zeppelin from the movie The Song Remains the Same:

Without Led Zeppelin, I truly believe John Paul Jones would have left his mark on the music world. He did a lot of session work before, during and after Zeppelin.John Paul Jones did the string arrangement for this super group's song :

After Led Zeppelin his work has been diverse, even when tackling old material.Here he is covering When the Levee Breaks:

His latest project as part of Them Crooked Vultures rocked as well as anything else...

This is just an appreciation on his birthday this is not a biography. I am thankful for the music he has created or helped create in his 66 years and I look forward to what he creates next..Thanks for visiting!
