Led Zeppelin Receives Kennedy Center Honor

Isn’t it amazing that a band from England who was influenced by American music achieves world wide fame and critical success and then is honored for their contribution to American arts and culture? It happened over the weekend as Led Zeppelin was honored by the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

The surviving members of Led Zeppelin joined one of their influences; Buddy Guy, as well as David Letterman and Dustin Hoffman at this year’s ceremony.

President Barack Obama hosted a special reception for the honorees Sunday at the White House and joked about the Led Zeppelin members saying that it was a good thing they were surrounded by thick glass and Secret Service everywhere so they couldn’t pull any shenanigans, making reference to the antics the group was known for while they were on tour.

Also on Sunday, the honorees were treated to an all star concert featuring Bonnie Raitt. Robert de Niro and Morgan Freeman also took part in the tributes. Some of the highlights will air Wednesday, December 26 on CBS and tonight, John Paul Jones, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page will join David Letterman on The Late Show at 10:35. No word on if the group will perform or not. I really, really, hope so. The DVR is set.
