In Not Fade Away, we take a look at the legacy of some of the greatest albums of the past few decades – some iconic, some lesser known – as they celebrate significant anniversaries. Here, […]
Clearly, it was a departure for the Kennedy Center Honors. Now in it’s 35th year, the ceremony started out by paying tribute to cultural icons like Fred Astaire, Ella Fitzgerald and Tennessee Williams. In recent years, rock has been represented more and more at this prestigious event, with Paul McCartney, Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Elton John and Bruce Springsteen all collecting the Kennedy Center medallion. But past ceremonies probably never got as loud as this year’s.
Our friends at Los Angeles alternative rock station KROQ are holding a poll to determine who rock’s greatest drummer is. Several legendary artists are included in the poll: among them, Ginger Baker of Cream, Frank Beard of ZZ Top, John Bonham of Led Zeppelin, Stewart Copeland of The Police and Neil Peart of Rush, among many others.
The members of the band dodged questions about their future but seemed to enjoy each other’s company, and took a lot of pride in their performance as captured in the film. Jimmy Page expressed relief that the show went as well as it did, saying the band was “uncomfortable” with their reunion performances at Live Aid (in 1985) and the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary Concert (in 1988).
Given that Grohl is a huge Led Zeppelin fan, we figure that it’s a given that he’ll return to the stage to perform at the Kennedy Center Honors event in December where Zep will be honored, alongside Buddy Guy, David Letterman, Dustin Hoffman and ballerina Natalia Makarova.
Led Zeppelin has apparently been counting down to some kind of big announcement via a series of posts on their official Facebook page that feature images of numbers (counting down from five to one) and a few cryptic video clips. The countdown started over the weekend, and hit “1″ yesterday, leading fans to have high hopes for some big news today.
Led Zeppelin’s countdown continued today, with the band posting a photo of the number “1″ to their Facebook page. The band have been counting down to something since this weekend, but there’s a lot of speculation as to what the band will do, or announce, when the countdown ends (which will be tomorrow, September 13).
Led Zeppelin, Buddy Guy and David Letterman are going to be honored at the 35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors, along with actor Dustin Hoffman and ballerina Natalia Makarova. The ceremony will take place at the Kennedy Center Opera Stage in Washington, D.C. on December 2, and will air on CBS December 26 at 9 pm ET.
Over the weekend, Led Zeppelin posted cryptic photos of the words “Five” and “Four,” followed by the Roman numeral “III” to their official Facebook page. At first, Zeppelin fans wondered what the significance of “Five” was, until it became clear that the band is counting down to… something.
Over the weekend, Led Zeppelin kicked off a countdown to an unspecified event on their Facebook page. On Saturday, they posted the word “Five” (in the font that the band used on their The Song Remains The Same album cover), leading to a flurry of online speculation: is there a 5 disc box set coming out? Is there a lost album between 1971′s Led Zeppelin (often referred to as “IV”) and the follow-up, 1973′s Houses Of The Holy that would now be seeing the light of day?
