The Night They Drove Ol’ Dixie Down – Fare Thee Well

Just a quick post to remember the great Levon Helm – one of the most distinct voices in music and the best drummer/ singer (apologies, Phil Collins) in rock and roll history. In 1994 I got see him up close in Nashville at 328 Performance Hall. He still had it.

He played with Bob Dylan, performed at Woodstock,  sang  “The Night They Drove Ol’ Dixie Down” and “The Weight” with the Band, was in movies, won Grammys, performed his Midnight Ramble concerts….a life in full to be sure.

You will be missed and thank you for the music. May your soul find rest and God Speed to your family.
