RIP Levon Helm

another bad one this week: Levon Helm, bateristul de la The Band si artist solo in his own right, a murit joi 19 de cancer, avea 71 de ani. In the annals rock and roll, Helm was a rarity, a drummer who could keep time while singing lead vocals. A jucat si in filme, debut in Coal Miner's Daughter in 1980, The Right Stuff (si narator), Fire Down Below ! si in doua filme produse de Michael Fitzgerald, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada si In The Electric Mist. In 2011 Helm a scos albumul sau final, Ramble at the Ryman, un live in Nashville. Autobiografie: “This Wheel’s On Fire”. In 1994, pe cind The Band au fost inclusi in Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, Helm a refuzat sa participe la ceremonie. "Take a load off" (The Weight) o piesa de pe albumul sau din 2009, Electric Dirt, scrisa pentru aceasta ocazie: When I Go Away “Levon Helm is the only drummer who can make you cry.”
