Robert Plant Humbled By Led Zeppelin's Kennedy Center Honors

(hennemusic) Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant reflects on the band's 2012 Kennedy Center Honors in a new interview with L.A. Weekly. Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones received the honors at a star-studded event in Washington last December.

"I knew we did a lot of damage to people's brains and ear drums, and I knew we wrote some great songs, but it was a very humbling experience," says Plant. "When I saw Heart perform 'Stairway To Heaven', I just couldn't believe that song had anything to do with this 64-year old man that was sitting next to John Paul Jones. I thought to myself, 'This is me... How did this happen?'"

"The charm of the people involved in the project, from the President and across the board...it was mind-altering," he continued. "I've been thrust in front of royalty all over the world, kings and queens and princes...but these guys were actually having a good time! The three of us were amazed that that sort of thing happened. That wouldn't happen with Prince Charles!" more on this story
