John is a multi instrumentalist and became famous as the bassist and keybord player for Led Zeppelin. Working as a session player, he crossed the paths with guitarist Jimmy Page (who was playing in The Yardbirds at that time) very often. In 1968, Page was planning to found a new band. After recruiting singer Robert Plant and drummer John Bonham, also John Paul Jones joined this group which was called firstly „The New Yardbirds“.
