The Passing of Levon Helm
April 20, 2012

I am very sad to hear of the passing of Levon Helm. The world has lost one of it's greatest entertainers that ever walked this earth. Levon was a true performer and a healer. His music healed many.  Anyone who has been to one of his Midnight Rambles could tell you that. He was a fighter as well and something very rare these days, his own man until the end. I cannot think of a world without Levon in it let alone the  town of Woodstock who has lost one of it's best friends. I was fortunate enough to have met him on numerous occasions and he was one of the most humble down to earth human beings that I have ever met. There was nothing false about Levon.  Levon was the true voice of Americana and was an inspiration and influence to all of us. I cannot write more now since I am really sad about this and still cannot grasp the whole thing though death is an old companion of mine.

My prayers and heart goes out to his daughter Amy and his wife Sandy as well as all of those up at the Barn on Plochman Lane that had the privilege and pleasure to know him and work with him.
