Re: Levon Helm dies at 71
Wow. Too young.
Levon was from Helana, Arkansa. He said the best band he ever saw was Elvis and Scotty Moore.
His book "This Wheel's on Fire" is a good read.
He said when Ronnie Hawkins recruited him and the boys to be his back up band, Ronnie said: "Well, son, you won't make much money, but you'll get more ---- than Frank Sinatra. "
If you want to listen to some music tonight, you could do a lot worse than "Big Pink".
