    Damn, damn, damn. He had a major role in the creation of so much great music.

    Someone in heaven needed a stick of Beemans.

    Was a wonderful tribute.

    May the road rise up to meet you, Levon.

    Loan me one will you? I'll pay you back later.
    Also tanned Sissy Spacek's hide in Coal Miner's Daughter. Interesting how some of these rockers (Steven Van Zandt's another one) who turn out to be really good character actors.

    The quality of these two clips is bad, but you can make out two legends playing together:

  9. I may play The Weight on loop for the rest of the day.
  10. One of my favorite shows on Wolfgang's Vault is one that Levon did with his group called the RCO All-Stars. It included Dr. John, the backup musicians from the Blues Brothers (Donald Dunn, Tom Malone, Alan Rubin, Lou Marini, et. al) and others in this star-studded lineup. Give it a listen. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. You may have to sign up, but it's free.

    Ah crap. Knew it was coming, but still ...

    So much great music by this guy, but "Don't Do It," is probably my favorite. The ultimate recidivist romantic song. Let's just say I can relate.

    (Yeah, I know it's a Marvin Gaye song originally. But the Helm/Band version is superior).

    Imus has been playing Levon all morning. He seems generally shook up by this.
