    The Band is only The Band because of the contributions of all the members. Each member was an expert on his instrument(s) and they had the type of chemistry and connection that most musicians can only dream about.

    @atom217 Completely agree with you. I wonder if Danko and Manuel lived long enough would they get the kind of love that Levon got in his later years? TBH, I prefer the songs sung by Danko and Manuel. @BJBooth I think the Band touring in 2015 refers to former members of the 80s/90s version of the group.

    I love Levon, but why does he seem to be the only one who gets all the love? Even on shoutboxes for songs sung by Danko and Manuel, people credit Levon Helm. I personally find Richard Manuel to be the center of The Band (the members mostly agreed with that), and he seems to get no love!

    Kinda disturbing to see the Band is touring as of Nov 2015. 3 of the original members have died, so it's really Robbie Robertson backed by Garth. Funny thing Robbie didn't want any part of them when they were alive in the 90's. What's next...the Beatles on tour??
