Heart's cover of Stairway To Heaven released
Heart's performance of the Led Zeppelin classic Stairway To Heaven from last month's Kennedy Center Honors tribute has been released.

The track is available at iTunes here.

In Washington, Heart were joined by Jason Bonham, the son of late Zeppelin drummer John; Jason played with Zeppelin at the band's 2007 reunion show in London, released recently as Celebration Day

"I am so happy you all liked our performance of Stairway to Heaven at The Kennedy Center Honors event," posted vocalist Ann Wilson. "It was our honor to be asked to do it before an audience like that. My main goal though was to please Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones...especially Plant, since all these many years he has taught me so much about singing from the soul and has given me such pleasure in his lyrics. What a high that night was. Never to be forgotten!"

Zeppelin were on hand along with fellow 2012 recipients David Letterman, bluesman Buddy Guy, actor and director Dustin Hoffman, and ballerina Natalia Makarova.
