    It's Helm not Helms. But very sad. I saw them play in small venue where I literally had my head resting on the stage in front his drums. Of course Robbie wasn't with them at that time. .... and Rick Emanuel had killed himself already. But it was still great!

    Great video- gave me chills. I think I will watch the Last Waltz tomorrow night. Very Loudly. :)
    Robbie posted that he went to visit Levon this week:
    Last week I was shocked and so saddened to hear that my old band mate, Levon, was in the final stages of his battle with cancer. It hit me really hard because I thought he had beaten throat cancer and had no idea that he was this ill. I spoke with his family and made arrangements to go and see him.

    On Sunday I went to New York and visited him in the hospital. I sat with Levon for a good while, and thought of the incredible and beautiful times we had together. It was heartwarming to be greeted by his lovely daughter Amy, whom I have known since she was born. Amy’s mother, Libby Titus, and her husband, Donald Fagen, were so kind to help walk me through this terrible time of sadness. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife Sandy.

    Levon is one of the most extraordinary talented people I’ve ever known and very much like an older brother to me. I am so grateful I got to see him one last time and will miss him and love him forever.

    -Robbie Robertson

    "And he shall be Levon. And he shall be a good man." I was a big fan. He'll be missed.

    Not bad for a bunch of Canadians and a Southerner. Not too many white dudes can pull off a Marvin Gaye song.

    Sad day. I drove up to upstate NY a few years ago to a concert in Levon's barn. They used to do shows every Sat. night during the summer. Got a signed CD of "Dirt Farmer" after the show. I've always been a fan of Levon and the life he has lived.

    One of the GOAT voices and drummers. This is so incredibly sad. RIP Levon
