RIP Robbie Robertson


Recommended Posts

Before the Band were the Band they were the Hawks, backing rocker Ronnie Hawkins. Hawkins had moved to Canada from Arkansas along with his band. The rest of the group left apart from drummer Levon Helm and were replaced by Canadians. The Band drifted away from Hawkins when they got too good for him.
Listen to Robertson's lead guitar on this track. He was only 16.
