The Band, has died in New York at age 71, after a battle with cancer.
The Band was a great favourite of my husband and me, and I can sing along fairly easily to many of their tunes. At one point, they teamed up with Bob Dylan to co-write several songs, including one of my very favourites, I Shall Be Released.
Mr. Helm, this may have been your Last Waltz, but your contribution to The Band's timeless rock-a-billy music will long be remembered.
