In Honor of Rick Danko who left our world on December 10, 1999.
This comes to us from one of my favorite FB pages, Levon Helm. The family remembers the incomparable Rick Danko on this anniversary day of his passing, 12-10-1999.
Listen to this outstanding performance by the band, sans Robbie Robertson, recorded in 1983. Do you know anyone else who sounds like Rick Danko? What a plaintive crooner, in the best sense. No one better.
“It Makes no Difference” from the Last Waltz for contrast and compare:
