Family: John Paul Jones

Zep man's family values.

Your parents made careers in the arts...

They were in variety. And when my mother left the road, my dad carried on for a bit. I would have liked to have gone to art college, but I was crap at drawing. And I’m glad I didn’t go. In the end I turned professional at sixteen. Every Monday I’d stand on the corner of Archer Street in Soho, where all the musicians used to hang out. Eventually I saw Jet Harris and asked him if he wanted a bass player.
