C&L's Late Night Music Club With The Band

It's hard to put into words the effect that Levon Helm and The Band had on me as both a musician and a human in general. Levon always reminded me of the kind of person who's mere presence made everything feel alright. Through acrimonious band splitups, to the death of friends and bandmates, to a long battle with cancer, he always had a smile and was happy just to be sharing his inimitable musical gift with others. He was truly one of a kind. RIP.

PS. Our sister site Newstalgia, which also posts a lot of great old music, really needs your help. Five bucks (or more, of course, but yeah, even five bucks) makes a difference. If you spend more than that on music in a month, please consider supporting oldies but goodies at Newstalgia. Thanks.
