Levon Helm Band (with guest Hayes Carll)
February 11, 2011
At 70 years old, most people are sitting back in an easy chair. With Levon Helm, it is clear that his easy chair is behind his drum kit. The man whose signature drum style helped to craft some of the most time tested and well known tunes of the last 40 years, Helm continues to embrace his creative side while seemingly enjoying each musical moment. Unfortunately he and his Levon Helm Band crew of players rarely depart from the northeast.
Photographer Vernon Webb was on the scene for a recent gig, which also brought singer/songwriter Hayes Carll as a special guest, to capture the occurences through his lens.
