Dave Grohl On John Paul Jones And Them Crooked Vultures: “It Was One Of The Highlights Of My Life…”

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.

Letterman’s response: “And had you mentioned the part about stealing cars to the Kennedy Center people?”

Led Zeppelin, David Letterman, Buddy Guy Celebrated At 35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors

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.
