I just finished it -- It's old....been out since the 90's I think ?......but I just got interested in it, as I browsed. A couple things --- * Why do these musicians all end up into dope ? Every damn rock bio - book I've read -- they ALL end up at some point into dope. I played in a bar band for 10 yrs --- Coke was king back then -- but I thank god I never got addicted to any crap that was around. * Levon really HATED Martin Scorsese. He said he never saw a dime from "The Last Waltz". ( and Levon's number that he sang was the only song that wasn't overdubbed later --- all the rest were.) Levon was asked to overdub + refused . He hated the project from the start. * Robbie Robertson comes off as a pretty big jerk - by the end of the book. Numerous reasons why. But I loved the fact his mic was always turned off + he'd fake like he was singing ! That cracked me up ! * My older brother brought "The Band" records into our house - My sisters' brought in Motown + female vocalists - A cousin brought in the Folky Bob Dylan records + we just loved his electric records - Me ?.....I guess, I contributed anything that had a ballsy/bluesy guitar in it. Funny how all those different tastes melted together on the same little record player !!! * When suggesting a name for the group -- " Crackers" was a serious consideration. * 3 out of the original 5 are deceased.
