The highlight as of now: This morning we sat down with Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, who kicked off Friday by joining the Nashville all-lady bluegrass group Uncle Earl and will play later tonight in the annual Super Jam alongside Ben Harper and Roots drummer ?uestlove. In true Bonnaroo fashion the trio has yet to rehearse. Said JPJ, “I haven’t even met them yet.” Check back here every day for up-to-date Bonnaroo coverage.
