The Band: The Last Waltz for Robbie and Levon

It was the fall of 1976 when change was in the air for four Canadians and an American that had impacted and influenced rock music in a profound way. With six studio albums and two records with Dylan in their rear-view, their last chapter was about to be written. In a way, written off for Levon Helm. While Robbie Robertson was ready to pack it in and go out with a bang, Levon was not. He didn’t want to break up the Band, it sickened him. Still, the farewell show featuring a Who’s Who of special guests, from Dylan to Muddy Waters, Van Morrison, Neil Young, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton and many more, not only went off, but was captured by the cameras of Martin Scorsese. And the 25th of November, 2014, marks 38 years since the original Band danced their last waltz.
