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.

King and Buddy Guy, classic rock icons Clapton, Jeff Beck and The Allman Brothers Band, country stars Vince Gill, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban and young guns including John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr.

I really enjoyed myself.” — Jimmy Page
