President Obama Pays Tribute to Led Zeppelin in Washington D.C.

Led Zeppelin — they started off making a mess of bourgeois households; now, like many of their 60s counterparts, they’re getting honored by the powers that be. This weekend, the band’s three surviving members — Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page — were honored for their cultural achievements at a festive ceremony in Washington D.C.. Looking very at ease with things, President Obama reminded us that, 30 years after the band’s last album, the “Led Zeppelin legacy lives on.” Somewhere Paul Ryan is eating his heart out.

Below we have footage of Led Zep during their heyday — a full concert recorded Live at the Royal Albert Hall in 1970.
