The Band's Robbie Robertson Writes Rock'n'Roll Primer for Kids

(Gibson) The Band's Robbie Robertson reckons kids need less twerking and more classic rock'n'roll and soul. He has co-authored Legends, Icons & Rebels: Music That Changed the World, a new book aimed at children to introduce them to some of the world's most influential music artists. The 128-page book profiles The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, The Beach Boys, Johnny Cash and many others.

Robertson co-wrote Legends, Icons & Rebels with his son, Sebastian, and his respective current and former managers, Jim Guerinot and Jared Levine. The book comes packaged with two CDs that include 27 classic recordings one by each of the music greats profiled.

Robertson is scheduled to make a couple of TV appearances to promote Legends, Icons & Rebels. He is a guest on CBS Saturday Morning, which airs at 7pm ET (October 12) and he'll also appear on an upcoming episode of PBS's Tavis Smiley.

Robertson and his three co-authors take part in a discussion and signing event at a Barnes & Noble store on Grove Drive in Los Angeles on October 16, at 7pm PT. more on this story
