Having completed the Mutural Admiration Society tour with Nickel Creek and Glen Phillips, former Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones is about to begin work on his next solo album.

"I hope now to spend the next few months writing and recording for my next solo album and attempt to turn all this inspiration into hard currency whilst the fingers are hot and the brain is buzzing," he writes on his official Web site.

The new album will be the follow-up to 2001's The Thunderthief, which was released on King Crimson leader Robert Fripp's Discipline Global Mobile label.

Led Zeppelin legend Jimmy Page is to make a very special appearance in London next week.

The guitarist will be plunging his hands into wet concrete outside the new Piccadilly Circus Virgin Megastore on Monday (August 23) at 10am, officially opening of the 'Walk Of Fame.'

The handprints will be the first to be immortalised in a permanent display of paving stones outside of the store, which will soon feature others from musical icons.

Page is best known for his work with the hugely influential rock band - famous for their anthems Stairway To Heaven, Black Dog, Whole Lotta Love, Dazed And Confused and Rock And Roll.

The event will mark the opening of the new Virgin Megastore. Other acts set to appear include The Killers and Faithless.

A major national Playstation 2 knockout competition is also set to take place in the store during the afternoon, as well as a martial arts demonstration.
