John Paul Jones at the Polar Music Awards in Sweden, 2013

Recommended Posts

On Monday 26th August, John Paul Jones led a talk at the Polar Music Awards in Sweden:



Here are some of the most interesting quotes:

When I was young I wanted to play every instrument. When I realised that I couldn't, that's when I started thinking about composition

I always hear what's wrong with a piece of my music before I hear what's right"

Music is everywhere in shops. I'm arranging things all the time. I've usually worked something out by the time I've left the shop

I'm writing an opera, I've just got to the end of the first act. It's like "Aah". That's the holy grail, the rest is going to be easy

How do I relax? I play instruments that I'm not usually associated with. Then I see my grandchildren.

Thanks Cookie, it's really interesting. I love how passionate John is about music. The second quote is also revealing. You've got have a great confidence on yourself so as not to lose heart being so critic. I admire him for that

"I always hear what's wrong with a piece of my music before I hear what's right"

I've always admired the humility of JPJ.

Aww, that's cute about his grandchildren. Anyone know how many he has? (In fact, anyone know how many they all have, JB included?)

Wonder if Them Crooked Vultures will ever reform, hope so.

Josh and Dave have said that they plan to, just not in the immediate future.

hope so too. Jonesy doesn't seem to be slowing down whatsoever, so I can't wait for him, Homme, and Grohl to make my ears bleed again :)
