Kennedy Center Honors Led Zeppelin

I made it a point to sit at home last night to watch the Kennedy Center Honors since I had seen that Led Zeppelin would be one of the honorees. 

The night began with Dustin Hoffman, then international ballerina Natalia Makarova, then Blues legend Buddy Guy, late night legend David Letterman, and finally the heavy metal gods known as Led Zeppelin.

Jack Black presented the opening comments before a video of their career began, then came the performances that were legendary themselves.  Not since Encomium, the CD of artists remaking classic Zeppelin songs released in 1995, have there been such great performances of classic Led Zeppelin songs.

Most notably was Kid Rock’s suprprisingly great version of “Ramble On,” then Lenny Kravitz smoking the stage with “Whole Lotta Love,” and finally Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart joined by Jason Bonham on drums for an awesome version of “Stairway To Heaven.”

I personally was impressed by the whole show and found myself shocked that it had been on for 2 hours cause it seemed like only an hour tops.

Did you watch the Kennedy Center Honors last night and if so what did you think of the performances of Led Zeppelin classics?  Leave your comments below.
