Stairway to Heaven (Kennedy Center Honnors)

I just found this video and I thought to share it with you.
As a Rock music fan I don't like all these 'celebration concerts' on which all the celebrities are gathering wearing their thousands of dollars tuxedos and jewells, in order to 'honor' some rock band that they once use to spit on! In this case we have something of that sort. It is a live performance of the legendary 'Staıway to Heaven' by Led Zeppelin, being performed live by some members of the band 'Heart', plus Jason Bohnam on drums, (the son of the drummer of Led Zeppelin John Bohnam), and plus a whole orcestra and choir.
   Among the audience you can see some of the celebrities I just mentioned, and yes, there is also Barak Obama!
But at the same time you can mostly see the 3 remaining members of Led Zeppelin, (Rober Plant, John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page), watching the performance. And that is the reason I'm posting this. To see how these Rock legends  have become with the passing years, and also to see their expressions while watching their own song performed live. It is a very good version I have to admit, but...
Anyway, you can watch the video and judge by yourselves...
