LED ZEPPELIN: D.C. on Sunday, N.Y. on Monday
Led Zeppelin came together again Sunday night, this time in Washington, D.C., but not to perform. They were among this year's group of Kennedy Center Honorees. The honors are the nation's highest award for those who influenced American culture through the arts.
President Obama was on hand for the ceremony and thanked Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Robert Plant for behaving themselves at the White House, given their past history of "hotel rooms trashed and mayhem all around." On hand to pay tribute to Zeppelin were the Foo Fighters, Kid Rock, Lenny Kravitz and Jack Black. Heart's Ann and Nancy Wilson, with a choir and Jason Bonham on drums, did "Stairway to Heaven."
Chicago blues legend Buddy Guy was also honored. Among those singing his praises were Bonnie Raitt and Tracy Chapman.
Also honored were David Letterman, Dustin Hoffman and ballerina Natalia Makarova.
Sunday night's ceremony will air on CBS on December 26th.
Zeppelin will be interviewed tonight on The Late Show With David Letterman.
