Plays over twenty instruments, at least 15 fluently. That is a musician, not someone who excels on just one instrument. This guy should be top ten and he's not even on the list? I mean, I love Robert Plant, but Jones is a thousand times the musician of not only Plant but nearly everyone on this list. Please give this list at least some legitimacy and put the heartbeat of Led Zeppelin where he belongs!
If it has keys or strings he can play it. That is a musician, folks.
