The surviving members of Led Zeppelin — Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones — made a rare television appearance on Monday night’s episode of Late Show with David Letterman. Coming on the heels of the band’s celebration at the Kennedy Center Honors, Letterman dedicated a majority of the interview to charting their influences, specifically focusing on fellow honoree Buddy Guy, and the decision to break up following John Bonham’s death.
The interview offered little new for diehard Zeppelin fans, and at times was almost cringe worthy. Letterman described Bonham as “your [unnamed] drummer who died,” and also asked the band to “help me out with a description” for their sound. However, the band appeared to find Letterman’s style comical, especially when he referenced Jack Black’s description of their music as about “sex, Vikings, and Vikings having sex.”
