Remembering Levon Helm In Chicago

"Levon Helm was the rarest of musical multi-taskers: an unflappable drummer and a singer who wrung soul out of every note," Greg Kot writes for the Tribune. "He also was a terrific team player and bandmate; he made the people around him sound good.

"Helm was 'the only drummer who could make you cry,' critic Jon Carroll once wrote.

"'It's nearly impossible to sing so smoothly and hit that hard at the same time,' singer Neko Case wrote on Twitter this week.

"Helm, who died Thursday in New York City at age 71 after a long battle with cancer, was part of one of the most revered ensembles in rock history, The Band, a quintet built on interplay, empathy and shared responsibility."

Helm performed here just last month and had played a variety of Chicago venues in recent years. Let's take a look.
