Led Zeppelin & Buddy Guy to Receive 2012 Kennedy
Center Honour -
Led Zeppelin & Buddy Guy are
among the recipients named for this year's (2012) Kennedy
Center Honours. The 5 others named by The John F. Kennedy
Center for the Performing Arts are US chat show legend David
Letterman, actor Dustin Hoffman and ballerina
Though Led Zeppelin will be honoured as a band
all three remaining members, Robert Plant, Jimmy
Page and John Paul Jones will each receive a
Kennedy Center medallion.
Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein said of this
year's recipients in a press release (via
"Buddy Guy is a titan of the blues and has been a tremendous
influence on virtually everyone who has picked up an electric
guitar in the last half century. David Letterman is one of the most
influential personalities in the history of television,
entertaining an entire generation of late-night viewers with his
unconventional wit and charm . . . and Led Zeppelin's John Paul
Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant transformed the sound of rock
& roll with their lyricism and innovative song structures,
infusing blues into the sound of rock & roll and laying the
foundation for countless rock bands."
The Kennedy Center Honors are to be presented
on December 1st, with the Honors Gala taking place on December 2nd.
The Gala will then air on December 26th on US Television network CBS.
