Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi blew minds of New Jersey-ians. R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe came out of retirement. Eddie Vedder joined Roger Waters for a Pink Floyd classic. Kanye West wore a kilt – which soon got it’s own Twitter handle (and over 1,000 followers!). Jay-Z was a no-show. And, apparently, Paul McCartney has joined a new band… with the surviving members of Nirvana. It all was part of 12.12.12 The Concert For Sandy Relief benefitting the Robin Hood Foundation.
John Paul Jones played on the Foo Fighters’ 2005 album “In Your Honor” (playing mandolin on “Another Round” and piano on “Miracle”), and at the 2008 Grammys, he conducted an orchestra that backed the Foo Fighters on their performance of “The Pretender.” Grohl tells CBS Local that actually being in a band with the man meant a great deal to him.
Dave Grohl recently announced that the Foo Fighters were going on a little vacation. He’s spending some of that time working on his latest labor of love, a documentary film about the legendary recording studio Sound City.
Clearly, it was a departure for the Kennedy Center Honors. Now in it’s 35th year, the ceremony started out by paying tribute to cultural icons like Fred Astaire, Ella Fitzgerald and Tennessee Williams. In recent years, rock has been represented more and more at this prestigious event, with Paul McCartney, Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Elton John and Bruce Springsteen all collecting the Kennedy Center medallion. But past ceremonies probably never got as loud as this year’s.

Given that Grohl is a huge Led Zeppelin fan, we figure that it’s a given that he’ll return to the stage to perform at the Kennedy Center Honors event in December where Zep will be honored, alongside Buddy Guy, David Letterman, Dustin Hoffman and ballerina Natalia Makarova.
