Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones will all come by the CBS studio to chat with Letterman, but that won’t be the first of the late night personality they’ve seen this week. The four men were celebrated by President Barack Obama during the Kennedy Center Honors on Sunday night.
“These guys also redefined the rock and roll lifestyle. We do not have video of this. But there was some hotel rooms trashed and mayhem all around,” Obama teased about the band during the Honors. “So it’s fitting that we’re doing this in a room with windows that are about three inches thick … and Secret Service all around … So, guys, just settle down.”
Led Zeppelin is likely heading to “Late Night” to promote the DVD and Blu-ray of its concert movie, “Celebration Day,” that was released Nov. 19. The film was of the band’s Dec. 10, 2007 reunion concert at London’s O2 Arena. It was the first time Led Zeppelin had performed together in a full concert in 27 years.
The Kennedy Center Honors were taped to air Dec. 26. on CBS.
