“I had to put one Led Zeppelin album on the list. I think this is the record where the bass sounds the best. It’s prominent and thick in the mix, and there’s some classic John Paul Jones stuff on here, like the basslines to Ramble On and What Is And What Should Never Be – amazing.The bass solo to The Lemon Song is one of the first solos I ever learned. That's definitely a classic.
“Zeppelin had different engineers for practically every album. Jimmy Page will tell you he did that because he didn’t want anybody taking credit for the Led Zeppelin sound. I believe that. For some reason, I think that Led Zeppelin II has the best low end of all the band's records. It’s very warm, and the kick drum and bass combination is really fat.
“The playing all over is unbelievable. Every one of the guys in Zeppelin was essential, so I have to give credit all around. But I do love John Paul Jones’ playing on Led Zep II. He’s pretty dynamic.”
