Levon Helm Dead at 71

Levon Helm, the legendary drummer and singer of The Band, has died after a long bout with throat cancer.

Helm’s family announced via his official website yesterday that he was in what they referred to as the “final stages” of his struggle with cancer yesterday.

Despite a years-long feud, former Band collaborator Robbie Robertson released a statement explaining that he had visited Helm in the hospital and that the two had made peace.

Born and raised in Arkansas, Helm began his career as a member of The Hawks, the backing band for Ronnie Hawkins, where he met his future “Band”mates. The group later went on to back Bob Dylan before striking out on their own.

Tune in to Andy Chase’s Happy Ending at 5 p.m. to hear a tribute to Levon Helm and The Band.
