Video: Led Zeppelin Interviewed on 'Late Show with David Letterman'
Led Zeppelin on air with David Letterman last night.
Last night, Led Zeppelin — Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Robert Plant — appeared on CBS TV's Late Show with David Letterman, where they were interviewed by Letterman, a fellow Sunday-night Kennedy Center Honors honoree.
The venerable trio chatted with Letterman about their influences, the Kennedy Center Honors event in Washington, D.C., and the good old days of shirtless aviation, a conversation prompted by Letterman holding up a picture of Led Zeppelin outside their "Starship" jet in 1973.
"You've got your own airplane, and you don't need to button your shirts for takeoff," Letterman joked.
Plant responded, "Some would say, 'What went wrong?'" Check out the video below.
Also, be sure to check out the brand-new January 2013 issue of Guitar World magazine, which features a new interview with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones and tells the story behind the reunion show. The issue also features a roundup of the 50 Greatest Led Zeppelin Songs, an extra interview with Page and a complete "Black Mountain Side" acoustic guitar lesson.
Over the past 20 years, Brad Tolinski, editorial director of Guitar World, Revolver and Guitar Aficionado magazines, has interviewed Jimmy Page more than any other journalist in the world. Those interviews have led to a new book, Light & Shade: Conversations With Jimmy Page, which was published October 23. Get your copy here!
