Levon hospitalized

Posted By on Mon, Dec 13, 2010 at 10:32 AM


Levon Helm, the legendary drummer for The Band and Marvell native, has been hospitalized in New York City after catching a cold that intensified his COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).

It's good news, however, that the ailment is unrelated to his battle with throat cancer in the late '90s and early '00s.

Helm, who turned 70 in May, is expected to make a full recovery.

We'll be sure to relay any news as soon as we hear back from manager Barbara O'Brien.

In the meantime, we figure Levon can just put some tape on it and get back to ramblin'.

UPDATE: O'Brien tells us that Mr. Helm getting stronger and they expect him back home in Woodstock by the end of the week.
