When country music legend Alison Krauss and Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant decided to collaborate in 2007, the music world waited with bated breath to see what this dynamic partnership would create. Raising Sands, the fruit of this musical union, is a revolutionary blend of folk, rock, bluegrass, soul and blues and is a chart-topping success. Tomorrow, these two music greats perform hits off their album at Merriweather Post Pavilion, 10475 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia. The show starts at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $40-$125.

Michael Jackson's drug history to be probed Detectives investigating the death of Michael Jackson are looking at his prescription drug history and trying to talk with his numerous former doctors, the Los Angeles police chief said. Jackson's father, Joe Jackson, told ABC News in an interview that he believed "foul play" was involved in his son's death. But in the interview aired Friday on Good Morning America, Jackson did not elaborate. Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton told CNN that police are waiting for the coroner's report before ruling out any possibilities in their "comprehensive" investigation into the sudden death of the 50-year-old pop star two weeks ago. The coroner's report will determine the cause of death and hinges on time-consuming toxicology tests.

If ever a rocker had the right to rest on his laurels and profitfrom his reputation, it's Robert Plant.His work with Led Zeppelin established him as one of the most imitated voices in hard rock, while his solo recordings have run the gamut from doo-wop tributes to sample-heavy techno rock. Given the breadth and range of his accomplishments, you might think that Plant would finally be ready to kick back and coast. But only if you didn't know him very well.Indeed, Plant's latest album, the just-released "Fate of Nations" (it arrives in record stores today)

Robert Plant has never been the sort given to worrying about radio play. He certainly didn't give the matter thought when he was in Led Zeppelin.After all, Zep often didn't even bother releasing singles, but tracks like "Kashmir" and "Stairway to Heaven" still got on the air.But Plant does hope that "Walking Into Clarksdale" (Atlantic 83092, arriving in stores Tuesday), his new album with guitarist Jimmy Page, gets a fair hearing on radio. Because "Walking Into Clarksdale" is the first full album of new material these two have recorded since Led Zeppelin - which ruled the rock world for 11 years and 10 albums - broke up some 19 years ago."

If you made the mistake of watching Fox's "Roseanne: An Unauthorized Biography" last night, you've got two chances to watch the real Roseanne tonight and get the taste of Denny Dillon's hideously bad portrayal out of your mouth. There's also an unofficial reunion on TV tonight, with Bill Cosby and Phylicia Rashad appearing on separate shows, and an official one, with Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, formerly of Led Zeppelin, doing an "Unledded" concert on MTV.* "The Cosby Mysteries" (8-9 p.m., Channel 2)

New York -- Awards shows are usually stuffy, star-studded events at which everything said sounds as if it came straight off the TelePrompTer. They're predictable, monotonous and stupifyingly dull.Fortunately, the 10th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Dinner is nothing like an awards show.Sure, speeches are made and statues change hands, but where that's usually the end of awards shows, that's only the beginning for the Hall of Fame. For one thing, most of the inductees and many of the inductors come ready to play -- meaning that this year's crowd got to hear first-rate performances by everyone from the Allman Brothers Band to Al Green (on his own and with Willie Nelson)

TC New York -- Jimmy Page and Robert Plant do like to talk.Given their historic reticence around the press -- an understandably tight-lipped response to all the years in which Led Zeppelin had to endure both sneering reviews and sensationalist profiles -- this is not their most celebrated trait. But here they are, hunkered down in a posh suite at the Essex House on a cool, October afternoon, nattering away about everything and anything -- including the fact that they're really too tired to be doing all this talking.

Let's get something straight right from the start: "Jimmy Page/Robert Plant (Unledded)" is not a Led Zeppelin reunion.It's better.Recorded live on location in London, Wales and Morocco, the 90-minute special (which will air this evening at 10 on MTV) doesn't so much reiterate the Led Zep legacy as reinvent it. True, nine of the 12 tunes performed have titles most Zep fans will easily recognize, but the arrangements are often radically -- and delightfully -- different.Take "The Battle of Evermore."

The days of Jim and Margaret Anderson ("Father Knows Best") or Ward and June Cleaver ("Leave It To Beaver") are long gone on television, but the apparent yearning for a stable family remains.How else to look at "Billy," a new ABC sitcom premiering tonight? The show (at 9:30, Channel 13) creates yet another unconventional family unit. Pay attention, it's complicated.Scottish comedian Billy Connolly returns as Billy MacGregor, the same character he did on last year's final season of "Head of the Class."
