The Billboard article includes several of the Band's greatest songs, which will be, of course, familiar to even casual fans. Here's a relatively recent (2008) performance by Levon and crew, and a fine one indeed, of one of my favorite Band songs, Ophelia
Thanks so much for all the great, great music, Levon.
