So maybe I’m a little bit behind on the news, but I was browsing through the Kennedy Center’s events calendar after I got home from the symphony last night and came upon the blurb for this year’s Kennedy Center Honors. I had to double-take when I saw that Led Zeppelin is one of the awardees.

According to a statement from Kennedy Center Chairman David Rubenstein, “Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant transformed the sound of rock and roll with their lyricism and innovative song structures, infusing blues into the sound of rock and roll and laying the foundation for countless rock bands.”

I cannot help but think that Dean would approve.
