There Is A Lady We All Know

Here is Heart performing "Stairway to Heaven" at a recent Kennedy Center Honors performance, along with Jason Bonham, a full orchestra, and a gospel-style choir. In attendance: Led Zeppelin. I'd like to report that my heart was hardened to this overblown rendition of the Most Overplayed Rock Song Ever, but the fact is that it is one hell of a rendition. Robert Plant is clearly very deeply (and tearfully) moved, and Jimmy Page's delight is a joy to behold. (When the hell did these guys get so gray?)
