Love & prayers to Levon Helm, musician, singer, actor, former drummer for the Band, who is in the final stages of his battle with cancer. He gave so much heart and soul from his earliest days with the Hawks all the way through his down home Midnight Rambles. He sure as hell brought a lot to the party.

Here is the message from his family that was posted on his official website:

Dear Friends,
Levon is in the final stages of his battle with cancer. Please send your prayers and love to him as he makes his way through this part of his journey. Thank you fans and music lovers who have made his life so filled with joy and celebration… he has loved nothing more than to play, to fill the room up with music, lay down the back beat, and make the people dance! He did it every time he took the stage… We appreciate all the love and support and concern.
From his daughter Amy, and wife Sandy
