Happy Birthday John Paul Jones! (Jan 3). John played bass, keyboards and like 50 other instruments, including the flugelhorn, for Led Zeppelin. If you are not familiar with the band, they achieved minor success in the 1970’s. 

Jonesy was named after his Great-Grandfather, John Paul Jones, the famous Naval Commander and Rear Admiral. And you know how painful that can be!
