Rest In Peace Levon Helm

Blog entry- star date 21-04012, Supplemental

Not very long ago, I visited the soundtrack to the film, “The Last Waltz,” which depicted the final concert by The Band. Regrettably, I am saddened to learn of the passing of The Band’s drummer Levon Helm this past Friday. According to official reports, Levon died peacefully in his sleep at the age of 71.

Natrually, I am now reflecting back to the film, which I saw in 1978 and remember him very well. Not only was he a great drummer, he also sang lead on such famous songs as “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Shape I’m In,” both hits for The Band. Tributes have already been pouring in from all over the music world, including Bob Dylan and I am expressing my deepest condolences for Levon’s family.

Rest in Peace Levon Helm

    Too many world class musicians passing away these past few years. Rest in peace, Levon Helm.
