He was like John Deacon was to Queen, or George Harrison to The Beatles. Unassuming, but essential.

Yes... you can put up there the likes of Al Jardine and Brian Jones as well...the unsung hero of the band who never got that proper recognition. JPJ was a a virtuoso... He of course wasn't highly regarded at bass as the other members are to their respective instruments, but he was solid on every on every instrument he contributed on and added so much more depth to their songs. I honestly cannot think of LZ w/out JPJ.... and he was definitely a solid bassist in his own right!

john paul jones was one of the reasons I started playing bass. i was never a massive led zeppelin fan but I grew up with them by my dad always having on their live videos and records
i think i learned a lot from them... especially the chemistry between the bass and drums...

Agreed...to me he even did his best work when he was still a session-man.....Just check him and Jimmy out right here backing-up Donovan! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTuPbJLqFKI" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

That was 1966 and still sounds fresh today!

Yes it does, one of Donovan's finest songs.

I've been listening to Robert Plant's new solo album which was released a few days ago. Anyone else heard it? I haven't heard any of his solo stuff before but this is pretty good. The opening track "The May Queen" could be a Led Zeppelin IV leftover. Sublime!

I haven't checked out his newer material yet, but have always been a major fan of his earlier solo efforts... "Big Log", and "In the Mood" both have been staples of mine and also the entire "Now and Zen" album is an absolute classic!

'Big Log' always struck me as where Zep would be, had they continued.

Interesting how Robert released it as a single, and it became a big hit - whereas Zep always avoided this in the UK.
