Prayers for Levon Helm

I first learned about Levon’s situation the other day but have been hesitant to say a lot about it until today because his family and friends have been being very tight-lipped about it. Today his wife Sandy and daughter Amy posted a message on his website letting everyone know that Levon was in the last stages of his battle with cancer. I just wanted to post a short video clip of Levon this evening of The Band playing with another legend, and my personal hero, Ronny Hawkins! I was four years old when this video was made…

From: The Last Waltz
Heads Up: There’s a Word I wouldn’t say in front of my mom in the video…

My thoughts and prayers go out to Levon this evening as well as his family, friends, and everyone at the Midnight Ramble. I’m sure I will be posting more about Levon and his legacy in the coming days, I’m thinking about even doing a YouTube playlist or something if I can find time. In the meantime, what’s your favorite Levon tune?
