    Fuck cancer!

    In 2009 I went to his house in New York because he puts on a handful of shows each year called "The Midnight Ramble" in his barn. It was phenomenal. Full band and incredible energy all while sitting right on top of the stage area. I'm thinking only about 100 people max fit in the place but I could be wrong about that. Amazing setting and experience.

    So cool you got to do that! If I didn't live so far away I might have been able to see a midnight ramble.

    Good vibes for Levon today.

    He just died.


    Sad day in my family. Some of my family goes back to the beginning with him, seeing The Band many times and several of his Midnight Ramble's the past few years.

    RIP. Levon may have been the best "groove" drummer ever. Soulful, sympathic, unique, timeless. And that's on top of having one of the greatest voices in rock history. Sad day.

    Well, thats it, I guess. RIP Levon.

    Robbie Robertson said around the time of The Last Waltz (after which The Band broke up) that life on the road was unsustainable. Seems to me, with 3 of the member dead now at relatively early ages, that life on the road shaved more than a few years off of their lives. I'd even bet inversely that for Richard Manuel, who committed suicide in 1986, the "absence" of the road is what drove him down.

    I was really sad about this.

    I had tickets for his 3/2 show in Northampton, MA (awesome town!!) but he cancelled it two days prior.

    The make-up gig was to be the day he died.

    RIP Levon
