Not doing so well: http://www.levonhelm.com/
Levon is in the final stages of his battle with cancer. Please send your prayers and love to him as he makes his way through this part of his journey.
Thank you fans and music lovers who have made his life so filled with joy and celebration... he has loved nothing more than to play, to fill the room up with music, lay down the back beat, and make the people dance! He did it every time he took the stage...
We appreciate all the love and support and concern.
From his daughter Amy, and wife Sandy

This one is hard.
Levon has been such a beacon all these years. I can't even count the number of times his music put a smile on my face. Practically the soundtrack of my life.
Last I knew he had a slipped disc and was only gonna be down for a few weeks. Lots of good vibes to his family during this tough time.

They should serve him Robbie Robertson's heart on a platter with some fava beans and a nice Chianti. I feel pretty certain this would cure him.
Shitty news. He made one hell of a comeback after his first bout. Makes me even more bummed that I didn't catch his show here a couple years ago.Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

Virgil Caine is the name...
+++vibes+++Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

Seems like Levons family is alright with Robbie.

stoked i saw him live, albeit at too young an age to realize what a treat it was.

One night only... a celebration of the life and music of Leon Helm at Denver's historic Oriental Theater featuring The Last Waltz on the big screen.
Benefit show for childhood music education. Hope you can make it.
