Book Review: Levon

Levon traces singer-drummer Levon Helm’s rebellious life on the road, from being booed with Bob Dylan, to the creative cauldron of Big Pink, the Woodstock Festival, world tours, The Last Waltz and beyond with the man Dylan called “one of the last true great spirits of my or any other generation.” The author especially delves into Helm’s upbeat final act, as he lived a full creative life despite the unfortunate dissolution of The Band.
