    Dark are the days when threads in the hamper cannot be sarcastically commented upon. Dark days, indeed.

    RIP LEVON your fellow Arkies will NOT let your legend die.
    We toasted him well on Hogville last night. His interviews are priceless.

    Interesting you say that. I was just reading an article about Levon where Warren Haynes was talking specifically about his drumming:

    Haynes played with Helm numerous times and described the multi-instrumentalist "as maybe the easiest drummer to play with I've ever (encountered). His backbeat and his pocket were so easy and comfortable. They just made you feel good. Every drummer who listened to that kind of music was borrowing something from Levon. When someone would say 'play that Levon Helm feel,' people would know exactly what that meant.''
    Hmmmm.....who's opinion carries more weight, Warren Haynes or :aplumberinacubicle:?

    Mine, of course.

    Besides, I'm pretty sure Warren Haynes is Warfish. Just an FYI...you should strongly consider the possibility before listening to his opinion.







    That's f*cking Warfish. You can tell by the hair and the sausage fingers. Plus he's holding a guitar...something Warfish has told us he does frequently.

    RIP Levon. One of the best. I saw him 5 times, once at Bonnaroo, the rest at his Rambles. Five of the best musical experience of my life.
