Posted on Levon's website earlier this afternoon ...
Levon had cancelled some dates recently and Robbie Robertson's shout out to him at the R&RHoF induction event this past weekend had apparently spawned rumors that it might be due to more than issues with his back.Dear Friends,
Levon is in the final stages of his battle with cancer. Please send your prayers and love to him as he makes his way through this part of his journey.
Thank you fans and music lovers who have made his life so filled with joy and celebration... he has loved nothing more than to play, to fill the room up with music, lay down the back beat, and make the people dance! He did it every time he took the stage...
We appreciate all the love and support and concern.
From his daughter Amy, and wife Sandy
I am sad beyond words .. and so very grateful that I made the long trek to his home for one ramble .. and so regret that I didn't do it several more times.
Not from 'my' ramble, but could have been taken from my seat ......
adding just 'cause . . . . .
