I love when things come full circle. I love The Band because of the good music, their story as a band and their going out with a bang attitude. They are the perfect fix when your jonesin for some heavy twang....on a Friday night perhaps. They were the back up band for some heavy hitters in the 60's. Point. Bob Dylan loved jammin with them. Point. Joan Baez covered their song. Point. Little Marty Scorsese did a movie about them. Game. It seams that all of their admirers are in my all time favorite people category. In a perfect world Danko,Helm, and Richard f-in Manuel would be in a glass box on my shelf somewhere (like my little ponies) so I could play with them when I got the itch.
