Das ‚Kennedy Center Honors‘ ist ein Event, bei dem Persönlichkeiten aus der Musikwelt geehrt werden. 2012 war das der Moment für Led Zeppelin.
Ann & Nancy Wilson (Heart) liefern eine Cover-Version von Stairway to Heaven – am Schlagzeug der Sohn des 1980 gestorbenen Schlagzeugers John Bonham – , die Robert Plant, Jimmy Page und John Paul Jones ein breites Lächeln und Tränen ins Gesicht zaubern.


Stairway to Heaven ~ Led Zeppelin

There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to Heaven
When she gets there, she knows if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
Ooh-ooh-hoo, hoo-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
And she’s buying a stairway to Heaven

There’s a sign on the wall, but she wants to be sure
‚Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook there’s a songbird who sings sometimes
All of our thoughts are misgiven

Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, it makes me wonder

There’s a feeling I get when I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand looking

Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, really makes me wonder

And it’s whispered that soon, if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter


If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now
It’s just a spring clean for the May Queen
Yes, there are two paths you can go by
But in the long run
There’s still time to change the road you’re on

And it makes me wonder

Your head is humming and it won’t go – in case you don’t know
The piper’s calling you to join him
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow
And did you know your stairway lies on the whispering wind, oh

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all, yeah
To be a rock and not to roll

And she’s buying a stairway to Heaven
