The Band’s Levon Helm is getting his due credit with a documentary of his own, set to screen in theaters nationwide next year.
Garth Hudson has just joined the bill for next week’s “Love For Levon,” the concert paying tribute to his late Band-mate, Levon Helm. Last week, a press release announced that Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters would be the last addition to the bill, but today the news came that Hudson, as well as blues-rocker Grace Potter will be joining the bill.
Waters, who just wrapped up a huge three year tour where he performed Pink Floyd’s The Wall every night, will be playing in relatively stripped down surroundings. Coincidentally, the one time when Waters performed with Helm was at Waters’ one-off performance of The Wall in Germany on July 21, 1990.
When much-beloved drummer/singer Levon Helm of The Band passed away on April 19, musicians from all genres and generations paid tribute at their concerts, in interviews and on Twitter. But on October 3rd at New Jersey’s Izod Center, a number of legends will pay tribute to him at a concert called “Love For Levon.”
It turns out Levon Helm, the singer and drummer of The Band, turned him on to blues harmonica players, which proved to be an important influence on Bobby Keys’ sax playing. Watch as Keys discusses Helm’s personal significance.
“Up On Cripple Creek” features Helm on lead vocals (he sang on the original version from The Band’s 1969 self-titled album). When Helm passed away on April 19, Ringo decided to release the track on iTunes.
