Levon Helm, singer and drummer for the Band, died on April 19th in New York of throat cancer. He was 71.

"He passed away peacefully at 1:30 this afternoon surrounded by his friends and bandmates," Helm's longtime guitarist Larry Campbell tells Rolling Stone. "All his friends were there, and it seemed like Levon was waiting for them. Ten minutes after they left we sat there and he just faded away. He did it with dignity. It was even two days ago they thought it would happen within hours, but he held on. It seems like he was Levon up to the end, doing it the way he wanted to do it. He loved us, we loved him."

What's the deal with celebs dying in 3s. Happens way too often

 

We figured out how dying in 3's works. When the 3rd one passes you start over at 1. Works every time. :rolleyes:

Jim Marshall died first

 

Na, Cornelius did! But death rates should never be a competition. It's the end of an era, REALLY! The 60s-70s era. The Band, American Bandstand, Soul Train, and Marshall amplifiers. Whos next? THE WHO?

 

And I should mention Ronnie Montrose. RIP.
