    Saw a lot of him playing over the years. Saw him just this last year several times and he was in good spirits and playing like a young man.

    RIP, Levon. Thanks for all the good times and great tunes.

    Damned sad. The LEADER of "The Band," not that Robbie Roberston asswipe, who couldn't even sing. I hope you read Levon's book - the "Last Waltz" chapter was an eye opener.

    RIP Levon.

    You were a good man / a gifted musician.
