Levon Helm, singer and drummer for The Band, sadly lost his long battle with throat cancer yesterday (April 19) at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. He was 71.
Friend and guitarist, Larry Campbell, told Rolling Stone:
|“He passed away peacefully at 1:30 this afternoon surrounded by his friends and bandmates. All his friends were there, and it seemed like Levon was waiting for them. Ten minutes after they left we sat there and he just faded away. He did it with dignity.”|
