According to The Pulse Of Radio, it’s been revealed that LED ZEPPELIN turned down President Bill Clinton’s request to reunite at last year’s 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden, which raised over $50 million for storm victims. ZEPPELIN’s passing on the offer was reported during a recent episode of CBS’ “60 Minutes”, which profiled the Robin Hood Foundation that put the superstar fundraiser together.

Kisser‘s solo debut, “Hubris I & II”, was nominated in the “Best Brazilian Rock Album” category at the 2010 Latin Grammys.
“Hubris I & II” was released in June 2009 via Holland’s Mascot Records. A two-disc set, the self-produced effort was recorded in part at A Voz do Brasil studio in São Paulo.
Kisser was honored with a commemorative brick with his name on it, placed in the wall in front of Liverpool, England’s legendary Cavern Pub, in a ceremony which took place on his 44th birthday, August 24, 2012. He is the first Brazilian artist to have his name eternalized in the Cavern wall that became famous when THE BEATLES made their first lunchtime appearance on Tuesday, February 9, 1961.
