Heart Cover Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway To Heaven' At Kennedy Center Honors

Led Zeppelin were the guests of honor in Washington, D.C. this month at the Kennedy Center Honors. The legendary rock band were paid tribute by the likes of Jack Black, Foo Fighters, Kid Rock, and Lenny Kravitz.

Zeppelin's three surviving members, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page, sat next to fellow honorees Buddy Guy, ballerina Natalia Makarova, David Letterman and Dustin Hoffman, all wearing the rainbow-colored sash and medal that had been given at a White House ceremony hours earlier.

Jason Bonham, son of original drummer John and the drummer for the band's 2007 reunion show, joined Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart for a show-ending version of "Stairway to Heaven" that gradually grew to include a string section, a horde of backup singers and the Joyce Garrett Youth Choir.

The annual Kennedy Center Honors gala tribute was broadcast on CBS December 26th.
