RIP Levon Helm (1940-2012). You were one of the v. great ones.
Here is a statement from the website:
“Levon Helm passed peacefully this afternoon. He was surrounded by family, friends and band mates and will be remembered by all he touched as a brilliant musician and a beautiful soul.”
I have been thinking about Levon Helm off & on during the day, how sweet & funny he was during our interview with him before Bluesfest 2001 . . . & the joyful intense drummerphoto LFP photo ace Ken Wightman took of Levon on that night.
