RIP Levon Helm, gone to join Rick Danko and Richard Manuel at the Great Gig In The Sky. Farewell to one of the original Roots Rockers. In an era when hippy-dippy freaky-deaky flower-power was ascendant, The Band made some of the most timeless music in rock, by staying down-to-earth and reconnecting with America's rich musical soil. Plenty of rockers played drums; Levon was one of those who played music. He will be missed, and his work will not fade away.
