Led Zeppelin Appearing Tonight On 'The Late Show With David Letterman'
The surviving members of Led Zeppelin will appear tonight (December 3rd) on CBS' The Late Show With David Letterman. Ultimate Classic Rock reported that the three -- Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones -- who, along with Letterman, were awarded the Kennedy Center Honor on Saturday night (December 1st) in Washington, D.C. -- will chat with Letterman -- but not perform. The Kennedy Center Honors will air on CBS on December 26th. Check your local listings for stations and times.
The band-members are promoting their new live collection, Celebration Day, which features Zeppelin's entire 2007 London reunion concert.
Robert Plant has been the lone holdout for another Led Zeppelin reunion. Despite promoters essentially offering the band a blank check for a series of concerts, Plant remains committed to his new musical direction in the "Americana" field: "I hate to say it, but it felt young. It felt like I didn't know what was going to happen next, and it didn't really matter -- and that was the great thing. I know the songs that I like and the songs that I always attach myself to have been of a certain genre, if they're not self-penned. And I was in very good company with people who had a very familiar lean in the same direction."
