Levon Helm in final moments of life

Drummer/singer Levon Helm has been reported to be in the final moments of life after a battle with cancer. Levon, in case you don't know, was the drummer for The Band. He's that 'voice' you instantly recognize in songs like "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," "Ophelia," and "Up on Cripple Creek."

From The Band to playing Loretta Lynn's daddy in "Coal Miner's Daughter" to his work with The Levon Helm Allstars, a great blues band, Helm's contribution can't be denied.

Rest easy, rest in peace, old boy.
