Levon Helm's Arkansas-hewn voice and imaginative drumming helped make the Band -- first known as Bob Dylan's backup band -- into one of the most esteemed groups in pop music history.

A sad day for Rock-Roll
The Band was glorified in a Martin Scorsese film "The Last Waltz"
We will miss you dearly Levon, rest in peace ~

RIP Levon. Love the Band.

We also lost the flautist & saxaphone player from the Aussie band Men at Work, Greg Ham, on the same day. Their song 'Down Under' was great. RIP Greg. Link: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/21/arts/music/greg-ham-musician-on-men-at-works-80s-hits-dies-at-58.html?_r=1

Two sad losses for music.
