British band win life-time achievement Grammy

LED ZEPPELIN have been honoured with a LIFE-TIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD ahead of this evening’s GRAMMYS (February 13).

The 70s band received the award from the US Recording Academy at a party in Los Angeles on Saturday (February 12) which was attended by guitarist Jimmy Page, keyboardist John Paul Jones and Jason and Zoe Bonham, the children of band’s late drummer John.

According to BBC News, the band were honoured alongside Janis Joplin, [a][/a] and Jelly Roll Morton.

Singer Robert Plant was unable to attend the party due to recording commitments but sent a video message, drawing criticism from Page.

“It wouldn’t have taken much just to pop over here and meet everybody, would it really?” said the guitarist.

Further tributes will be paid to Led Zeppelin and the other acts at tonight’s Grammy Awards ceremony.
