Joanie Cox-Henry of Sun-Sentinel.com recently conducted an interview with Jason Bonham, son of legendary LED ZEPPELIN drummer John Bonham.
Asked about sharing the stage with Ann and Nancy Wilson of HEART to perform “Stairway To Heaven” during the LED ZEPPELIN tribute at theKennedy Center Honors, Jason said: “When I was asked to do’Stairway’, I was, like, ‘Really? ‘Stairway’?’ There are some songs you just don’t touch. But the arrangement with the choir, orchestra and way the whole band played was very special. Both Robert [Plant] and John Paul [Jones] were blown away by the arrangements. It was cool and different. The respect to the original was incredible and Ann and Nancywere fantastic. There were 50 people bobbing up and down wearing top hats. The hairs on the back of your neck stand up when you see something like this.
