Levon Helm : 1940 - 2012

Tonight The Band's classic 1969 self-titled album is on my turntable, in honour  of the great Levon Helm. The legendary drummer passed away earlier today following a battle with cancer. Noted by critic Jon Caroll as “the only drummer that could make you cry”, Helm will be remembered for not only his excellenbt drumming, but also for his vocal performances on classic tracks like ‘The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down’ and ‘The Weight’. Mr Scott:Music would like to send thoughts and best wishes to his friends and family.
