This news broke my heart. Levon is one of my favorite musicians of all time. Levon sang in his own voice, he didnt try to mask his rich Arkansas accent while he belted out great tunes such as "The Weight", "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", and "Ophelia" to only name a few. Perhaps the most incredible aspect of his talent was that he was playing the drums (or mandolin) the entire time he sang.
Here's to you Levon! Your music will live forever, be with us in the best of times, and see us through the hard times.
