Carry That Weight

The Band's drummer, songwriter, co-singer and multi-instrumentalist Levon Helm died on Friday (he's in the centre in the picture). In 1968 The Band caused almost every rock musician you can think of to give up psychedelia and go stripped down and rural. They looked like they came from 'the old, weird America'.

The Weight
