 John Paul Jones - (Concert Review - 11/24/94)
Jones has always been one of the most open-minded musicians and playing with Diamanda Galas is not what most Led Zeppelin fans would expect.
Jones' heavy riffs were very reminiscent of his Zeppelin days and some songs sounded like they were from the Presence era in 1976.
After fourteen years, it appears that John Paul Jones is the only one of the remaining members of Zeppelin that carries on doing what the band was all about - the music: constantly growing and taking it in new directions, not backwards.

A couple of months ago, I got the word that Jones was going to be in town doing some press for his second solo album, the follow up to 1999's Zooma, and I wasted no time in securing a spot on his agenda.
Musicians these days, they don't seem to do that anymore, and bring it all into the mix.
