Led Zeppelin receive high American honor

A band whose first United States exposure came low on a concert bill, while supporting Vanilla Fudge and Spirit in Denver, were accorded the nation's highest award for those who influenced American culture through the arts last night.
LED ZEPPELIN were among the recipients of the KENNEDY CENTER HONORS, along with great Chicago bluesman BUDDY GUY, actor Dustin Hoffman, ballerina Natalia Makarova and television talk-show host David Letterman.
It's fitting that the surviving members of Led Zeppelin should receive such an honor.
Early in their career, ROBERT PLANT, JIMMY PAGE and JOHN PAUL JONES realized that true success would only come through expanding beyond Britain and conquering the hearts of American music fans.
