The Band

I was just wondering what some of you think of The band, like em', don't like em', anything, what genre would they be... to me their like a mix between rock, country, blues, and folk waht do you think? Me personally I kinda like them and their a pretty talented bunch of musicians.

Also where can I find some good tabs for their songs there doesn't seem to be any, and when you search the net for them because of their name you get anything and everything that has the word band in it so its pretty difficult to find tabs

I absolutely love the band. In fact I watched The Last Waltz yesterday, and the Festival Express today. So much ass-kickery

One song I love and that I've been looking for that song "the weight" but can't find anything but chords, and I've been trying to figure out some of the riffs in between but I've had no luck, I wish I had a better ear for figuring out music!

i really like the band but i think Robbie Robertson is an ass, him and Martin scorsasie took almost all of the money from the last waltz, and he took credit for alot of songs that the others wrote.(Levon Helm wrote The weight and The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. and the others may have wrote more that RR took the credit for.)

they disbanded prior to the deaths mainly because of squabbles between members (I.E. everyone hated Robbie Robertson)
Rick Danko died on 12/10/1999 (cause unknown)
Richard Manuel Hung himself on 3/4/1986
Levon almost died from throat cancer (caused by smoking) but survived (and still smokes)
Robbie Robertson is fine and in good health

Definetly a great band....every member is equally as talented as the others, and they all play everything! The last waltz, festival express and even the new dylan movie all have great footage of them. and honestly, there aresnt any tabs out there, and usually i search the band and end up with dave mattews band..

Try here for tabs: http://theband.hiof.no/books/sheet_mfbp_tb.html


The above web page contains tabs from their earlier albums.
That's the best I can suggest I'm afraid.

I'm fortunate to own a copy of the Northern Lights/Southern Cross music book. It doesn't have tab, but shows chords and the music for each song off the album.

They are one of the worlds greatest bands, and have made some fantastic music. Rick Danko's solo music is arguably as good as his work within the Band.
Richard Manuel's 'Whispering Pines' album was a brilliant live album, it's just a pity he didn't get round to doing a studio album.

Also, don't you think Johnny Cash should have been in the Last Waltz?! Grr!

Easily one of the greatest music concerts ever filmed. The 12-Bar Blues bit with Clapton is extremely awesome. The people who appeared as guests in that film; Dylan, Clapton, Young, etc... Some of the greatest musicians of all time.

I own quite a few their CDs, but sadly, I can't find a favorite because they're all so good. A true American-Canadian classic.

I believe that it's Levon who lives in Woodstock, NY and every Saturday or so has a jam with his friends where he sells 100 tickets (available online) to people who come to watch him play and bring a meal for a potluck dinner.

My plans for after graduating from college (when i get to college) are to move up to Woodstock (or in the general area) and open a guitar shop (just a little one) and maybe open a custom shop if I learn how to build guitars.

Maybe if I'm lucky Levon will still be alive and I can jam with him.
