Led Zeppelin

Polar Prize Awarded Monday

The surviving members of the legendary British rock band Led Zeppelin and Russian conductor Valery Gergiev receive the Polar Music Prize from Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf at a ceremony in Stockholm Monday.

The award, which is typically split between pop artists and classical musicians, was founded in 1989 by Stig Anderson, manager of Swedish pop group ABBA, through a donation to The Royal Swedish Academy of Music.

Each prize winner collects 137,000 dollars.
