JPJ had plenty of great bass songs, the lemon song like you said, ramble on, GTBT, D&C,
black dog, (which he wrote) d'yer m'aker, the crunge, since I've been loving you, ect.
Plus he often followed Page's (not Paige's) r iffs note for note on those big old strings (heartbreaker, the ocean, hot dog, four sticks, houses of
the holy, ect.)
He was a multi-instrumentalist and a great compsoser (the rain song, in the light, friends, carouselrousaramba(sp???))
And check out the live recordings sometime where he's playing a bass part and an organ part at the same time. Truly impressive.
Hehe, sorry if that comes off as harsh, you just bring out the Ledhead in me.
