Zeppelin's John Paul Jones often asked to sign album by American performer J.P. Jones

This news originally appeared in an edition of the newsletter "On This Day In Led Zeppelin History" that centered on a comedian who, for a short time in 1970 and 1971, was calling himself John Paul Joans and had famously released a single under that name, against the wishes of Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones. The following portion of this newsletter edition introduces yet another musical performer who had been using a similar name for decades.

What a popular name! Lemon Squeezings learned recently of a musician whose name is John Paul Jones. John Paul "J.P." Jones, born in 1949, hails from America. His self-titled debut album appeared on the Columbia label in 1973. On its cover is J.P. Jones, with toes protruding from holes in his socks.

This album has caused some confusion among Led Zeppelin fans. The former Zep bassist told Lemon Squeezings in 2002, "People in the past have tried to get me to autograph this record and get pretty pissed when I won't."

In addition, this aspiring folk singer-songwriter has continued to perform and released eight CDs since 1991. Check this guy out at
