The Band Drummer Levon Helm

These public deaths always seem to happen in threes, but seemingly not THIS fast. Earlier today news broke that Dark Shadows actor Jonathan Frid had died, while TV legend Dick Clark passed away yesterday. Unfortunately, Levon Helm, one of the key figures of The Band and who had been battling throat cancer, died today at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City at the age of 71, less than a month before his birthday. Helm had been diagnosed with throat cancer in the late 1990s, undergoing radiation treatment that damaged his voice.

Helm, who was the drummer for The Band and also sometimes lead singer, is best known for his deeply soulful and country twinged vocals on radio staples as “The Weight,” “Up on Cripple Creek,” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.” The Band, while never reaching massive success in terms of sales, was a critical and cult favorite of many to this day, and Helm was one of the fan favorites in the group.
