John Paul Jones Interview Clip and DVD

A news-clip of John Paul Jones backstage at the Øya festival in Oslo last week has turned up. While mostly in Dutch (at a guess), Jones does have a couple of clips discussing his playing with Supersilent, who Jones played with at Øya.

The clip also shows Jones recording with Susanna Wallumroed and Helge Sten.

The clip can be found here, and starts at the 7-minute and 6-second mark.

Jones will also be doing a small UK tour with Supersilent in November. Tour dates are:

Nov. 14: Birmingham - Town Hall
Nov 15: Glasgow - The Arches
Nov 16: Manchester - RNCM
Nov 17: Bristol - Arnolfini
Nov 18: London - Village Underground

Jones also announced via his homepage that last September's Sunflower Jam, a London concert featuring various members of Deep Purple and others, will be released on DVD:
