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. But past ceremonies probably never got as loud as this year’s.
The show won’t be broadcasted live: an edited version will air on CBS on December 26. But CBS Local will be there, live tweeting the event from Radio.com. We’ll also have a wrap-up after the show is over Sunday night.
Tuesday (November 27) marks 70 years since the birth of Jimi Hendrix, the man who changed electric guitar and rock’n'roll forever. For the past few weeks, CBS Local has discussed the man’s impact with musicians who came after him, his peers, and even one of his main inspirations. Everyone felt his influence, whether it was on their guitar playing, or their singing. Some even found a new direction for their life thanks to Jimi.
Eric Clapton announced that he’s bringing the festival to New York’s Madison Square Garden on April 12 and 13, 2013, with a lineup that includes blues legends B.B. 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.
The Stones, who still have the pull to play the world’s largest venues, have always liked to hit the clubs. They started as a club band in London, after all. Here’s a list of some of their smaller shows through the years.
Led Zeppelin, Buddy Guy and David Letterman are going to be honored at the 35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors, along with actor Dustin Hoffman and ballerina Natalia Makarova.

On February 21, Buddy Guy was part of a group of musicians who performed at the White House as part of a salute to blues music. While Mick Jagger passed the mic off to Obama that night, it was Guy who convinced the president to perform with the group for “Sweet Home Chicago.”
