We lost another legend today.
Levon Helm of The Band will always be remembered by the songs and performances he gave us. This version of “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” (with it’s powerful horn arrangements and vocals by drummer Helm) was immortalized in the Martin Scorsese film “The Last Waltz” which documents the final performance of The Band on Thanksgiving Day 1976 at the Winterland Ballroom in San Fransisco.
In the world of indie music, there isn’t a band or solo artist who does not carry the musical DNA of Helm and The Band. Respect where it is due.
