When the Song He Composed 44 Years Ago Began Playing, He Couldn’t Hold Back the Tears

Robert Plant Can't Hold Back the Tears During "Stairway to Heaven" Musical Tribute.

Walk into any music store and chances are you’ll probably hear someone playing Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway to Heaven’ on the guitar. It is one of the first songs many guitarists learn and it’s enjoyed by anyone who hears it. It has been declared as one the best song of all-time. And,¬†it’s safe to say they are probably right.

When the members of Led Zeppelin were honored at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012, they couldn’t believe the performance of Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson. Rock band members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones were transfixed by the moving tribute. Plant, in particular, was very emotional during the performance.
