People may not realize the impact The Band had. They were 'the band' for various front men including Ronnie Hawkins and Bob Dylan before they released Music from Big Pink in 1968. They were very influential on George Harrison and on Eric Clapton's decision to leave Cream. They both wanted to create a more roots oriented music that integrated blues, folk, R&B, gospel, and soul.
