Vale: Levon Helm.

And so we also say farewell to Levon Helm, With Rick Danko he was the spine of the beast that was The Band. He was part of The Hawks before Dylan took them on board, the backing band for Ronnie Hawkins.

An amazing voice, drummer and multi-instrumentalist.

Tonight I'm listening to The Weight, Up On Cripple Creek, and The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.

More than once.
