RIP Levon Helm – this seminal drummer, singer, solo artist & actor’s death has been extensively covered, and we’ll see numerous tributes yet, worldwide. Minor detail I hadn’t yet registered: this here song (which hasn’t aged well) … The Band was apparently Elton John’s and Bernie Taupin’s favourite group at the time they were recording the “Madman Across The Water” lp (1971).
