Levon Helm, drummer, mandolin player,  and frequent lead vocalist of The Band, is apparently losing his decade long battle against cancer. This marvelous musician brought a lot of joy to my life - and even gave me a reason to dance occasionally.  Thank you, Levon. [NOTE: Video shows The Band, 1990, playing "The Weight" at Festival Express in Toronto].
