Dee Dee Posted February 3, 2013 Share Posted February 3, 2013 With Valentine's Day coming this month, I have a serious Stairway question which I decided to post here instead of the trivia thread because I honestly don't know the answer and my intention is not challenge but rather to find an answer. I honestly don't know the answer. Please help if you can. Question: What type of recorder was played by John Paul Jones on Stairway to Heaven? I supposed only JPJ would actually know this but if there are any musicians who may know, please help. Also, if there are any insiders in the JPJ camp who know, please help. It is my understanding that the wind instrument played in the opening bars of Stairway to Heaven is a recorder. JPJ plays both parts; one of which is dubbed. I understand that for anyone to know this beyond a shadow of a doubt, one would have had to have been there, and then know what type of recorder it was, and then be able to remember. If anyone has access to John Paul Jones, please ask and post his answer here. Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
