VGS 2020: Our in-depth conversation with Charlie Jones is an insight into one of the UK's greatest working bass players - a versatile musician who has worked as a professional player since he was 16 and was Robert Plant and Jimmy Page's choice when they reconvened to tour and record together in the '90s.
