    This makes me very sad. A true giant in American music.

    Levon's performance on "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" in The Last Waltz left an indelible mark on my childhood. May his journey's last mile be trod with light steps.

    The reports were not wrong. I have spent the last few days marinating myself in The Band's work. Just such a great window into the era. RIP, good sir.

    Levon Helm passes away at 71.
