Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones joins Seasick Steve at Isle Of Wight

Bassist takes part in a rendition of 'Thunderbird'

Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones joined Seasick Steve on stage yesterday (June 11) at the Isle Of Wight Festival.

The bass legend [pictured below] played on Steve‘s recent album ‘You Can’t Teach An Old Dog New Tricks’, and reprised his role for his Main Stage set in the afternoon. Watch footage of the pair performing ‘Thunderbird’ by clicking below.

The Led Zep man wasn’t the only rock legend Seasick Steve found himself associated with over the weekend at the festival. Last night Dave Grolh gave him a shout-out during Foo Fighters’ headline set at the bash.


Kasabian are set to close the festival this evening on the Main Stage.
