"That’s when I started to think that the wisest guy in Led Zeppelin was John Paul Jones. Why? He ever got got caught in an embarrassing situation. He would always show up at the very last minute for anything. You’d never even know where he was staying. He drove himself, and was independent from the rest of the band. Peter and the band were always saying, ‘Where the fuck is he?’ It upset them that he couldn’t manipulate him. He didn’t give a damn. He was the kind of person that enjoyed mind games. He might say, ‘Hmmm, Jimmy seems tense, wouldn’t it be funny if someone threw a firecracker at him.’ And of course, John Bonham would then throw the firecrackers at Jimmy. I thought he was brilliant. He could do any other job and had a great sense of practical joke.”
