Foo Fighters, Kid Rock, Jason Bonham Tribute Led Zeppelin

(hennemusic) Led Zeppelin were among the guests featured on the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors special broadcast on Boxing Day.

Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones received the honors earlier this month in Washington. The annual award is given to those in the performing arts for their lifetime of contributions to American culture.

The Foo Fighters opened with "Rock And Roll," which featured drummer Taylor Hawkins out front on lead vocals while Dave Grohl handled the backbeat.

Kid Rock was up next, performing "Ramble On," from "Led Zeppelin II," while Lenny Kravitz followed with that album's opening cut, "Whole Lotta Love."

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.
