The Band's Robertson Wants Kids To Know Music's 'Legends'

Melissa Block talks with musician Robbie Robertson of The Band about his first book, Legends, Icons & Rebels, an illustrated guide to 27 musical greats aimed at kids. Robertson says all the musicians in the book, which includes the Beatles, Johnny Cash, and Joni Mitchell, were on the playlist at his house, so his kids had a strong musical foundation. He hopes this new book helps other kids as well.
