Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, John Mayer, Gregg Allman, and others are getting together to pay tribute one of my favorite artists, the late great Levon Helm of The Band.
The "Love for Levon" benefit concert will be held Oct. 3 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J. It will include performances from such artists as My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne, Patty Griffin, Bruce Hornsby, Mavis Staples and Joe Walsh. Proceeds from the concert will support Levon's estate and his Midnight Ramble concerts.
I don't know anybody that could drum and sing quite like Levon who died of throat cancer earlier this year at age 71.
