    Bassist John Paul Jones, who turns 66 in a few weeks, spoke to VH1 Radio about what could've been had John Bonham not died in 1980. JPJ said, "We were optimistic.  I knew it would have been interesting. It would've been musically interesting and it would've been nice to see us happy again. We were getting happy again.  There were a few dark moments at the end of the '70s."

    JPJ is also in Them Crooked Vultures with Dave Grohl and Josh Homme. They are working on their second album.

    What is your theory on how Led Zeppelin would have "gone" had Bonham lived?
