awed even the remaining led zeps!
 
2012-12-27 08:18:06 PM  
wow. just wow.
 
2012-12-27 08:24:55 PM  
Heart has always covered zep songs in concert, and covered them well.
 
2012-12-27 08:30:10 PM  
I saw Zep in the late 70's. Zep live really sucked at that time, they just kinda phoned it in, no passion, bad sound and muddled vocals. Their back up band "Heart" Rocked.
 
2012-12-27 08:42:05 PM  
Wow, thanks Subby

That inspired me to look around YT a little & found the entire show here.

/good spot for a RR but isn't I swear
 
2012-12-27 08:45:12 PM  
And just posted a couple minutes ago on YT - The HD version
 
2012-12-27 08:55:12 PM  
And Heart's new album is very good too, worth checking out.

Yeah, that was officially awesome.

/and on vacation so why not grab the Les Paul
//yes that was like second song I learned so many years ago
 
2012-12-28 12:19:28 AM  
OK, that was...FKN AWESOME!
 
2012-12-28 12:28:51 AM  
You know Stairway to Heaven gets a lot of stick for being a cliche, but it's a great iconic rock track from one of the greatest iconic bands of all time.

Heart's cover is amazing. It gave me goosebumps watching Jason Bonham (looking more like his father ever day) playing on this.
 
2012-12-28 12:30:30 AM  
WOW!!! That was farking awesome!
 
2012-12-28 12:51:54 AM  
I will put Nancy Wilson against any guitarist you care to name. She kicks ass.

I saw Heart in 1977 when I was in high school. I snuck into a university library to watch them from "behind stage" (they were playing in the courtyard outside.)

They played Barracuda at least five times.

In before some 20-something hipster moron attempts to reduce Led Zeppelin to a stolen bunch of old blues songs.  If you believe that this is all that they were, you are far too stupid to live.
 
2012-12-28 01:08:14 AM  
Yeah. That worked just fine.
 
2012-12-28 01:20:53 AM  
It was great, but she doesn't move away from the mic to breathe in.
 
2012-12-28 01:27:26 AM  
Not even close.

One hot summer day in the early eighties they held what they called the "Texas Jam" in Texas Stadium in Dallas. I'll never forget how hot it was that day with not a cloud in the sky except for the one that passed over the stadium and kicked up a nice cool breeze at the exact moment that Heart started playing Mistral Wind. As soon as the song was over the cloud was gone. It freaked everybody out, including the band.

Thanks so much for posting the link.  The whole show is so farkin' awesome.

Who was sitting on the other side of Robert Plant from Jimmy Page? I saw David Letterman on Jimmy's left, but who's the guy on Plant's right?
 
2012-12-28 01:39:43 AM  
Repeat

And not as good as the Buddy Guy tribute by Jeff Beck and Beth Hart (linked in the original thread)

/Nancy should have played lead
//They should have played their rendition of Battle of Evermore

John Paul Jones.


Amazing. I have to rediscover some Zep!

Interesting that most people fail to recognize the most talented member of that group.
 
2012-12-28 01:49:51 AM  
Magnificent rendition. Excellent find, subby!
 
2012-12-28 02:01:25 AM  
Not too shabby at all.
 
2012-12-28 02:03:15 AM  
I have 35+ years of rock and roll emotions pouring from my eyes and heart right now.....every memory from putting the needle down on the spinning Atlantic Records green and orange label on my very own copy of Led Zeppelin I in 1976 at 12 years old to this absolutely amazing performance.

And to be on stage performing before the nodding heads of approval from the boys themselves at the Kennedy Center. Words cannot express the honor as a musician......

//I hope to age as well as Messrs. Page, Plant, and Jones are!///
 
2012-12-28 02:04:27 AM  
Pretty good. Heart cant touch this cover of Misty Mountain Hop though.

Ah... I screwed up. I was thinking he was dead. I think I was thinking of the keyboardist and bass player from Pink Floyd and was confusing them in my head.

Ugh.

It's 7am or so in the UK - waaay too early to be so emotional....
 
2012-12-28 02:21:14 AM  
The Obamas soaking it up @ 3:40 is a nice touch. The dude from LZ (I don't know them) wiping a manly tear from his eye at the end was another.  Heart really do rock, now and always.
 
2012-12-28 02:24:46 AM  
What, are they doing the show every day? And will we get a link every time they do it?

/francis, lighten thyself
 
2012-12-28 02:27:35 AM  
It is a shame John Bonham Couldn't have lived to see this. But this was a pretty great tribute in my opinion. even if it is a repete from just a few hours ago.
 
2012-12-28 02:28:10 AM  
Most Zeppelin songs are like porn stars. I recognize them but I don't really know their names.

Texxas Jam (with two 'x'es)

This was a good version, but nothing amazing IMO. All you people sitting there with your jaws allegedly agape realize that Ann & Nancy aren't going to sleep with you, right?

At the 4:19 mark that went from outstanding to transcendent!

The greats seem to have this light touch and slow hand style (Hi Eric!) that put them a notch above. This was the nicest cover I've ever heard.

/ Thank you Subby!

The thought never even entered my mind. Grow up.

What I saw was a fantastic performance by a talented variety of musicians performing a great song before the admiring eyes of the gentlemen who composed it while receiving the greatest honor this country bestows upon its performing artists. To be honored at the Kennedy Center before peers and the President of the United States....Wow.

chrisr64: To be honored at the Kennedy Center before peers and the President of the United States....Wow.


I generally don't agree with our President politically, but I like him and his family, and seeing them enjoying that great performance was very pleasing. Led Zeppelin and Heart both deserve the honors as amazing artists.
 
2012-12-28 03:08:52 AM  
Plant and Page added a lot of excitement to my enjoyment of music when I was young and the Wilson sisters just put the perfect bookmark on that.
 
2012-12-28 03:12:55 AM  
Jason Bonham does a pretty good job filling in for his dad, although it doesn't look as effortless.
 
2012-12-28 03:16:03 AM  
John Bonham was stronger... quite often, he would break bass drum heads because his massive foot would kick the pedal through the drum skin
 
2012-12-28 03:22:58 AM  
That was amazing, but I still weep for the lost hotness of the Heart ladies.
