  • 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??
  • I truly love The Band. Some real good soul music. My life is looking so down right now and they elevate me. I wish I was around to see them.
  • @LastOneStand Definitely. These guys were hugely influential in the development of roots rock. Nobody did it better, though, because all of them were/are incredible musicians and while a lot of roots rock comes off as the artist trying to sound like the real thing, the Band's music at its best has every bit as much atmosphere as the best blues, folk and country. Their first several albums, in addition to the stuff they did with Dylan, are of remarkably high quality.
  • I still remember myself watching "The Last Waltz" in the cinema. Awesome!
  • Even if you never heard this band somehow their songs sounds familiar looks like many people copied them over the yers
  • Other bands should be like The Band.
