    I didn't hear that he died. That's a shame.

    I've always been meaning to make it up to go see a Ramble - Guess I am too late. I've caught him at the Beacon a number of times - always put on a good show.

    The Band was one of my first music influences - I took my father's Last Waltz double cassette and played it incessantly. The Night they Drove Old Dixie Down is one of my 5 year old's favorite songs.

    RIP Levon. We'll miss you.

    Did he die? I just saw this, but haven't seen any news of his death:


    Dear Friends,

    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

    Yeah, if anyone sees anything, please post. Otherwise I'm going to lock. Doesn't seem right to be prematurely posting the RIP.

    As far as I know, he is still alive. According to his website, he is in the final stages of cancer.
