Happy 70th, Levon

Posted By on Wed, May 26, 2010 at 1:51 PM


Marvell, Arkansas' favorite son, the Dirt Farmer himself, Levon Helm, takes a turn in to the big seven-oh today!

Arkansas Times wishes him a great one with many more to come.

Hop over the jump for some of our favorite videos of the quintessential drummer's drummer.

The Band - "Rag Mama Rag" (1983 Reunion Tour)

The Band - "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" ("The Last Waltz" version)

Levon Helm - "Tennessee Jed" (Live on The Late Show, 2009)

An awesomely stoned Levon, teaching drums in 1990. (Feller, just put some tape on eet!)
