Biography

There are at least 3 artists with that name.

1. Paul Jones (born February 24, 1942 in Portsmouth, England as Paul P Pond) is an English singer, actor, harmonica player, and radio and television presenter.
As “P.P. Pond”, Paul Jones performed duets with Elmo Lewis (aka future founder member of The Rolling Stones, Brian Jones) at the Ealing Club, home of Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated, whose singers included Long John Baldry and Mick Jagger. He was asked by Keith Richards and Brian Jones to be the lead singer of a group they were forming, but he turned them down. Jones then went on to be the vocalist and harmonica player of the successful 1960s group Manfred Mann.He had several Top Ten hits with Manfred Mann before going solo in July 1966. He remained with His Master’s Voice.
He was less successful without the band than they were with his replacement, but did have a few hits, notably with “High Time” (1966) and “I’ve Been a Bad, Bad Boy” and “Thinkin’ Ain’t for Me” (both 1967) before attempting to branch into acting. While his solo recording career was barely successful in the UK, it never got off the ground in the US. He did have enough hits in Sweden however to have a greatest hits album released there on EMI.

    Amazingly the similiar artists tagging system does not mention Manfredd Mann, who I believe Paul had a fleeting dalliance with. If that doesn't show the bankruptcy of the Last.fm tags I don't know what does.
