Led Zeppelin stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman on Monday night (December 3) where the remaining members Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones dished on a number of topics.
Speaking on the death of John Bonham, Page noted that it effectively ended the career of Zep:
"There was no way with the amount of work and mutation that had gone on with those songs, that we could say to another drummer, 'could you learn this bit and learn that bit?,' it just wouldn't work."
Page, Plant and Jones, who did not perform on the Letterman show, were celebrated by President Barack Obama during the Kennedy Center Honors on the previous night.
"These guys also redefined the rock and roll lifestyle. We do not have video of this. But there was some hotel rooms trashed and mayhem all around," Obama jokingly said of the group.
