Default Goodbye Levon

I've been trying to search to see if anyone has already mentioned this but the site seems to be acting up this afternoon.
I just wanted to pay tribute to one of the best and highly underrated drummers ever.. Levon Helm of 'The Band' who sadly passed away yesterday afternoon after a 14 year battle with cancer! An absolute legend and an extremely talented multi instrumentalist with a voice as powerful and unique as his playing.

Goodbye Levon, you will always live on through the music you made.

I just watched "The Last Waltz" by The Band. An amazing film featuring an equally amazing drummer and musician
RIP

[quote=MaryO;991096]Ringo just posted this on his FB page. Great vid. Sobering to think 4 of these guys are gone now- Levon, Clarence, Billy and Rick. What a huge bunch of talent lost!
