John Richard Baldwin. No, he’s not one of the Baldwin Brothers, he’s one of the Led Zeppelin Brothers.

Better known to us as John Paul Jones or Jonesy, he was born on this day in 1946. That makes this rock-n-roller 71 years young. JPJ was born in1946 in Kent, England.

John is a talented musician, excelling in several instruments including keyboards, bass guitar, guitar, violin, cello, and organ. He started in his pre-teens learning to play musical instruments. John’s father and mother were both in the music industry.

He worked with several artists and bands before becoming a member of Led Zeppelin. His bass lines play a big part in the success of the band.

Let’s celebrate John Paul Jones’ 71st birthday with an excellent version of Nobody’s Fault But Mine played on a steel guitar. Happy Birthday Paul!
