Celebrating Levon Helm
On May 26, 1940 a legend was born. On April 19, 2012 we lost a legend. But the years in between were amazing. Those are the years that Levon Helm was in this world.
I've been a fan of The Band for a long time. And I've always loved Levon. Great drummer, singer, mandolin player...you get the picture. A musician's musician.
And then I got to meet him. A few times, as a matter of fact. He was so humble, so nice. I couldn't believe we we're lucky enough to have him at the radio station. Yet, he acted as if he was lucky to be there.
Remembering a great man on what would have been his 75th birthday, and celebrating his life and the difference he made in ours.
