This Time, The Last Waltz Was His Alone

Levon Helm lifted himself out of bankruptcy and sickness to give his fans and fellow musicians nearly a decade of great music. So much has been written about Helm’s rough-and-tumble career with The Band in the 1960s and 70s, but the last chapter of his life provided a triumphant ending.

A new book sheds light on the iconic vocalist and drummer’s Grammy-winning coda.

  1. Rob- Levon was a giant of Rock, who never lost his footing. Maybe I’ll watch the Last Waltz again for the nostalgia it stirs up, and love of great music and movie making.
