Though his concert at the Galaxy in Santa Ana on Friday will be devoted to Led Zeppelin covers, drummer Jason Bonham--son of late Zep drummer John--actually has been getting into Beck. And we don't mean Jeff Beck, Zep guitarist Jimmy Page's onetime sidekick. Granted, it's hard to envision young Bonham following in the footsteps of the other Beck, the alternative rock bohemian known for his iconoclasm.

Grammy voters love catching up with acts that weren't significantly recognized when they were at their creative peaks, and this year one of those nods went to Led Zeppelin's “Celebration Day,” the live album documenting the surviving members' 2007 reunion in London. Group founders Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones were supported by drummer Jason Bonham, filling in for his departed dad, John Bonham, for these shows that retraced the group's history in 17 songs including such cornerstone numbers as “Whole Lotta Love,” “Rock and Roll,” “Black Dog,” “Dazed and Confused” and “Stairway to Heaven.” Fans clamored for a tour in the wake of the acclaimed show, and there continues to be talk of the possibility, but nothing's been confirmed to date.

The surviving members of the English rock group Led Zeppelin climbed an exalted stairway on Sunday. No, not that one . But the group did arrive in person to receive the Kennedy Center Honors in a ceremony hosted by President Obama in Washington D.C.. The mega-selling act, known for its punishing blues riffs and wails from Robert Plant that became classic-rock staples, was lauded along with guitarist Buddy Guy, ballerina Natalia Makarova, David Letterman and Dustin Hoffman.

NEWPORT BEACH 4:30pm Music Mozart wrote five violin concertos when he was 19 and still employed as the concertmaster in the court orchestra of the Archbishop of Salzburg. Having mastered the form, for reasons unknown, he never returned to it. Roger Wilkie plays the Fifth Concerto (also known as the "Turkish" Concerto because of a Gypsy-like section in the last movement) with the Mozart Classical Orchestra led by founding director Ami Porat. The program also will include Mozart's Symphony No.

Jason Bonham is his father's son. The progeny of one of rock 'n' roll's most famous drummers, the late John "Bonzo" Bonham of Led Zeppelin, is a drummer too. But while he embraces his family legacy, Bonham, 32, wants to use songwriting to become his own musician. Last year, he released a live album of 10 Zeppelin covers, "In the Name of My Father--the Zep Set," and donated the proceeds to charity.

Jason Bonham, leader of the band Bonham, acknowledges some of his music tends to sound a lot like his dad's old band--Led Zeppelin. But that's only natural, he figures. He has remained close to Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page and singer Robert Plant since the 1980 death of his father, drummer John Bonham. "They're like family," Bonham told the Dallas Morning News. "They're two of the greatest guys in the world, and I love them very much."
