I Watched the DVD of The Last Waltz Today

The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down 

I felt that instead of reading today, I should look into my DVD collection and see a movie that I hadn't seen in a while.  I chose The Last Waltz which was directed by Martin Scorcese.  Back in November 1976, the Band did a concert at Winterland in San Francisco to mark the end of the group.  It also included performances by:
  • The Staples Singers
  • Van Morrison
  • Neil Diamond
  • Neil Young
  • Bob Dylan
  • Joni Mitchell
  • Eric Clapton
The Band did reform some years later without Robbie Robertson.  Sadly, Levon Helm, Rick Danko and Richard Manuel passed away later on.
