I have this greatest love for The Band.. brought on by a listen when I was about seventeen.

My two best friends, Lizzie and Billy. Billy played the guitar, from Tulsa, so he got it, and his sister Lizzie sang.

I sat crossed legged in her English boudoir bedroom in Bel Air, and knew they were the musical advisories.  I never may have known the Band if it wasn’t for them.

How come no one has spoken about Levon? Are we too obsessed with mediocrity? How did our tastes vanish into

CNN.

Now it’s the Kardasian, whatever her name is.  Who cares. Why? What happened to us?

I loved you Levon. I love you The Band. It breaks my heart.

  1. Amen…..lets give thanks to those with talent, those that contribute to society…..NOT to those that diminish our essence of beings. There are few talented people in the World, let give them a standing ovation. Good call from Loulou, another talented individual.
