The CBS "60 Minutes Overtime" webcast reported Monday: Even former-President Bill Clinton couldn't get Led Zeppelin to reunite. Clinton was asked to try to get the band back together last year for the Superstorm Sandy benefit concert in New York City. He asked, they said no. David Saltzman of the Robin Hood Foundation says he and film executive Harvey Weinstein flew to Washington to ask Clinton. Led Zeppelin's surviving members Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page were in Washington just before the Sandy concert for the Kennedy Center Honors. More  and more  and more  and more

Meanwhile, roots musician Patty Griffin new solo album "American Kid," is out today. There are three tracks featuring Robert Plant. He and Griffin have been dating for a long time and they also collaborate together in their group Band of Joy. Griffin spoke to Billboard about the online rumors of her and Plant being married, saying "We're not legally married, no. We get a lot of energy from each other's singing. We both have similar places that we come from as singers-a lot of emotion, and sometimes the emotion overrides technique. He inspires me. He goes far and deep." More and more
