    Remember Levon Helm from The Band?  And The Weight, what a great song!  Take a load off Fanny...

    He was first diagnosed with throat cancer in the 90s, but I guess it recurred or metastasized.

      That is incredibly sad news. The Band (imho) were never recognised fully for their influence over many (rightful) music superstars. But, for "The Weight" alone, theirs and Levon Helm's place in the pantheon is deserved, and assured. I'm going to (re) watch "The Last Waltz" tonight by way of tribute.
