I also heard, today, of the death of Levon Helm...one of my favourite musicians of all time. I saw him live, in the '70s, at 'The Last Waltz' in San Francisco...(The Band's farewell concert.) Anyone who has a copy of that concert on DVD should take a look and listen again to appreciate what a truly unique and gifted man he was. I loved his playing and singing and always will, a great, great musician.
He would have loved you too, Bill. I always secretly wished that you would have made your way to one of the 'Midnight Ramble' shows that Levon held at his barn in Woodstock, NY, The few that i got to attend were magical.
A very, very nice man. A true Southern Gentleman and a tremendous musical talent,
RIP, Levon. http://www.levonhelm.com/
