John Paul Jones has said in a new interview that he “can’t be arsed” to make a new solo album.
He told Mojo Magazine in its new December 2018 issue that he has no plans to release a new solo album, and is instead focusing on his upcoming opera.
When asked if he would make another solo album, Jones replied “No, no, no, I can’t be arsed.”
In the interview, Jones recalled the difficult experience of dealing with promoters during his tours to support his 1999 solo album “Zooma.”
“We toured the world, sold out shows, then promoters started insisting I get a bloody singer,” he said. “It was instrumental music, but I’m not Jeff Beck. I remember a promoter saying ‘We can’t grow it.’ Oh well, fuck you all.”
