Levon Helm & Mavis Staples rehearsing in Woodstock, NY.

Great pic of Levon Helm, his band and Mavis Staples rehearsing today in preparation for tomorrow night's gig in Woodstock, NY. For those in attendance, it will be recorded. What an amazing night it will be!

Michael DeTemple & his impact on The Band's music.

Michael DeTemple supposedly built the harp guitar used by Robbie Robertson @ the end of The Last Waltz, but the guitar is credited as being a loner from LA's Norman's Rare Guitars (still in existence). Michael also joined Rick Danko in his solo years following The Band & played the intro to Sip the Wine.
