Missing here is original band member, John Bonham (drummer), who died accidentally on September 25, 1980. After his death, the band, dating to 1968, decided to disband. In this performance, the drummer is Jason Bonham, son of John Bonham. How fitting and touching.
Other Kennedy Center honorees in 2012, the 35th annual tribute, were Buddy Guy (blues guitarist), Dustin Hoffman (film actor & director), David Letterman (comedian and TV host) and Natalia Makarova (ballerina & choreographer).
