When I Get Offa This Mountain You Know Where I'm Gonna Go

The music world is a little poorer and a little sadder, but Heaven is rocking. Levon Helm, drummer and vocalist for The Band, left this world for the last part of his journey. He leaves behind a legacy of music that touched more people than even he could have believed.

Levon believed in and practiced the spirit of the American farmer. The first Farm Aid concert was partly his idea in cooperation with John Mellencamp, another farm boy. They put the plight of the American family farm front and center in the mid-80's.

Thank you, Levon, for the music and memories you left us.
See you when I get there.
