I waw Don Imus crack-up this morning while talking about Levon. I did not think he was so emotional. Guess they were good friends.
Yeah, apparently they were.
And remember, Don Imus just lost his brother recently. He was a jock on Serius/XM.
This has been a beating for me; like Stevie Ray, Townes, and Eddy Shaver.... though I knew that Levon was sick and I never met him, but a beating nonetheless.
Townes Van Zandt only walked by me at Poor David’s (that dude smelled like The Road), Eddy sold me guitar strings in Waco, and I actually got to talk to Stevie when he was prime-time.
I am fixin’ to break out ‘Gina’ (my six string) and play; may have a nip or two.
RIP and God Bless, Levon Helm. We miss you already.
