Levon Helm

The Black Crowes will record new, original material for an upcoming album during four sold-out concerts at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, New York, in February and March. This run of performances at the recording studio built decades ago by the 2008 Grammy winner and former drummer for the Band are being billed as "Cabin Fever Winter 2009." The shows on February 21, 22, 28 and March 1 sold out in less than two days.

"We're thrilled," Helm, who's not scheduled to perform, tells Rolling Stone. "It kind of shows me that we're doing things right." Over the last few years Helm has staged "Midnight Ramble" house concerts at the studio -- Saturday night performances Rolling Stone named Best Jam Session that feature special guests sitting in with the Levon Helm Band... [Rolling Stone]

Jesus Christ.. Does BV have to report EVERYTHING? The last thing us hippies need is for hipsters to jump on this band wagon and had north. Oh yeah, jam sessions are to long hold most of your a.d.d. attention spans!

Hippies should learn how to spell simple words like "too" before they go casting aspersions about people's attention spans.

I went to a Ramble in Woodstock on Thanksgiving weekend. It was beautiful. Levon played for 3 hours and played pretty much the entire Last Waltz soundtrack.

Levon is the s@#$ and anyone who says otherwise should really just get their My Chemical Romance album, put on some eye liner and go sit with Jared Leto in the corner.

I didn't expect the demand to be so high for these shows. Go Levon.

We just can't shake The Band - and that drum stick wielding bearded wonder rocks the soul.
