Levon Helm, singer and drummer for the Band, died of throat cancer on April 19th in Manhattan. He was 71. Helm provided gravelly vocals and rock-solid backbeats for Band favorites including "Up on Cripple Creek," "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" and "Rag Mama Rag," and had a late-career resurgence leading "Midnight Ramble" performances at his Woodstock, New York home.
