NEW YORK (AP) -- It's a diplomatic failure at the highest level: Bill Clinton couldn't get Led Zeppelin to reunite.
The CBS "60 Minutes" webcast reported Monday that the former president was enlisted to ask the British rock gods to get 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 to make the plea. 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.
Led Zeppelin last played publicly at a one-night reunion in London in 2007.
