Levon Helm - The memories will always continue

We learned this week that Levon Helm's daughter Amy and wife Sandy posted a note announcing that Helm "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."

What a tragic turn. Conquered throat cancer, then won three Grammies, and now the end.

*Electric Dirt - Best Americana Album 2009
*Ramble At the Ryman - Best Americana Album 2011

Here's two videos showing my favorite memory of Helm with John Hiatt performing with the Levon Helm Band at Wolf Trap on Nov 7, 2010.
