“I’m enjoying life and spending more time in America now. I really enjoy it. I’m becoming way more aware and opinionated and stimulated by these new adventures. Everybody says I’m workaholic, and I just keep going and going. And I will do that (again).” — Robert Plant

Dave Grohl On John Paul Jones And Them Crooked Vultures: “It Was One Of The Highlights Of My Life…”

John Paul Jones played on the Foo Fighters’ 2005 album “In Your Honor” (playing mandolin on “Another Round” and piano on “Miracle”), and at the 2008 Grammys, he conducted an orchestra that backed the Foo Fighters on their performance of “The Pretender.” Grohl tells CBS Local that actually being in a band with the man meant a great deal to him.

Letterman’s response: “And had you mentioned the part about stealing cars to the Kennedy Center people?”

Led Zeppelin, David Letterman, Buddy Guy Celebrated At 35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors

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.

5 Things We Learned From Jimmy Page’s “Rolling Stone” Interview

And Rolling Stone didn’t always give Zeppelin’s records favorable reviews.

The stage invasion happened while Plant and his band, The Sensational Space Shifters, were finishing their take on Led Zeppelin’s classic “Rock And Roll.” The man rushed the stage, but security quickly tackled him and shut down his attempt to approach the former Zeppelin frontman.
