The Led Zeppelin Tribute at The Kennedy Center

Eminent artists, friends and peers of this year’s seven honorees converged in Washington, D.C., Sunday night (Dec. 2) to present entertaining and heartfelt tributes at the Kennedy Center Honors, with Caroline Kennedy as host for the 10th consecutive year. The annual event recognizes recipients for their lifetime contributions to American culture through the performing arts in dance, music, theater, opera, motion pictures and television.

What a tribute it was – Here is the entire Led Zeppelin portion of the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors Show including: Introduction by Jack Black, the Foo Fighters playing “Rock and Roll”, Kid Rock playing “Ramble On”, Lenny Kravitz playing “Whole Lotta Love” and Ann & Nancy Wilson, Jason Bonham and a full choir playing “Stairway To Heaven”.

Bound to be a classic…

    I have, over the past week, watched the Led Zep tribute at least 25 times. Each time I have to wipe my eyes for what I see, what I hear and for the love I have for the band that helped me deal with the teen and mid twenty years of my life. I speak specifically of the Stairway to Heaven rendition that the Wilson sisters were a part of. Each time I see it I see something I had missed seeing the time before. The String orchestra, the first choir, the second choir, the Boler hats worn by Jason Bonham and the second choir, as well as the grace shown on the face and in the eyes of Jimmy Page. Nothing but FIRST CLASS folks. They were shown the ultimate in respect from everyone involved in putting that show together. Thank you. I don’t want these icons to ever leave. They said it best and I truly believe that there’s still time to change the road your on. Peace out.
