Former Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones joined Seasick Steve onstage at Reading Festival this afternoon (August 27).

This is the third UK festival show this summer where the pair have performed together, after Jones also guested with the blues veteran at the Isle Of Wight Festival in June and at Latitude Festival in July.

The bass legend, who recently played alongside Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme and Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl as part of Them Crooked Vultures, performed on Seasick Steve's most recent album 'You Can’t Teach An Old Dog New Tricks' and reprised his role as a collaborator on the Main Stage today.

The Strokes and Pulp co–headline the Main Stage this evening, with Two Door Cinema Club, Bombay Bicycle Club, Odd Future, Crystal Castles, The National and Jimmy Eat World also set to play the bash today too.
