Led Zeppelin Makes Rare TV Appearance
Led Zeppelin made a rare TV appearance when they stopped by The Late Show With David Letterman on Monday night. This followed their weekend in Washington, D.C. where both they and Letterman were presented with the Kennedy Center Honors. Sadly, Letterman did the bulk of the talking, often rambling and perhaps a little nervous or not well prepared, while the band only offered up a few one-liners and no real news. The talked about the weekend in D.C., being influenced by the blues, meeting Elvis Presley in the early '70s, with Robert Plant saying, "He had a lot of chicks," and not continuing with another drummer after the death of John Bonham because, according to Jimmy Page, "It just wouldn't work." John Paul Jones cracked a few jokes and when asked how he would describe Zeppelin's music, he hummed the opening to "Whole Lotta Love."
