Heart – Stairway to Heaven

Every year the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts announces  individuals who will receive the 2012 Kennedy  Center Honors. Recipients honored ths year at the 35th annual national celebration  of the arts were: bluesman Buddy Guy, actor and director Dustin Hoffman, comedian and television host David Letterman,  ballerina Natalia Makarova, and rock  band Led Zeppelin. While Led  Zeppelin is being honored as a band, keyboardist/bassist John Paul Jones, guitarist  Jimmy Page, and singer Robert Plant will each receive the Kennedy Center  Honors.  As part of the event artists such as the Foo Fighters, Lenny Kravitz, Kid Rock covered some Led Zeppelin songs and Heart did the finale with a rendition of Stairway to Heaven backed up by the Joyce Garrett Youth Choir.  Now of all songs that you do not want to cover as a band it is this song as it is hard to imagine it getting any better…well listen to this song of the week “Stairway to Heaven” and you decide.

BTW – It is John Bonham’s son (Jason) on the drums

There is something about a choir backing up a great song that sends chills down my spine – U2 did the same thing with the song “I Still  Haven’t Found What I am Looking For”

Thanks to Shawn for sending me this one.
