John Paul Jones

"The Thunderthief"

The Story
Reviewer Robert Silverstein, "Assisted by Terl Bryant (drums), Nick Beggs (Chapman stick), Adam Bomb (guitar) and King Crimson's own Robert Fripp (guitar), John Paul Jones returns with a new album that rivals his solo debut "Zooma". "The Thunderthief" is a mostly instrumental set that finds the Led Zeppelin legend turning in a solid performance on 4-, 6-, 10- and 12-string basses, bass steel guitar, acoustic / electric guitars, electric mandolin, vocals and a range of sundry acoustic and electric instruments. Guitar great Jimmy Page often took credit for much of Zeppelin's success, but Jones was the man behind the scenes adding in the full spectrum of colors that made them so huge. That edge is easily discernible on "The Thunderthief". Although mostly instrumental, Jones does unite with lyricist Peter Blegvad on a couple vocal tracks.Zeppelin fans are advised to hunt down "The Thunderthief"."
