Levon Helm: Will The Love Continue?
If you couldn’t make it to Wednesday night’s Love for Levon Helm tribute show in New Jersey, fear not.
For sure you can catch it on TV or buy the DVD early next year, but Keith Wortman, the show’s producer, says there is talk to take the show on the road or to make it an annual event. While it will be tough to get all of Wednesday’s performers — Roger Waters, Joe Walsh, Gregg Allman and so many others — on the same stage at the same time, they all agreed that they felt Levon’s spirit and would love to continue to honor his legacy in anyway they can. Money raised from the show will go towards helping pay the million-dollar mortgage on Levon’s Woodstock, New York home and studio. Levon Helm died on April 19th from cancer. He was 71.
