Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Band, who backed Bob Dylan when he went electric in 1965 and then turned out a half-dozen albums of beautifully crafted, image-rich songs, is now regarded as one of the most influential rock groups of the '60s. But while their music evoked a Southern mythology, only their Arkansawyer drummer, Levon Helm, was the genuine article. From the cotton fields to Woodstock, from seeing Sonny Boy Williamson and Elvis Presley to playing for President Clinton, This Wheels on Fire replays the tumultuous history of our times in Levons own unforgettable folksy drawl. This edition is expanded with a new afterword by the authors.

About the Author

Levon Helm met Ronnie Hawkins at the age of 17 and formed what would soon become The Band. He lives in Woodstock, New York. Stephen Davis is the author of the best-selling rock book of all time, Hammer of the Gods.

An elemental insight into the history of Levon, and of The Band; great read. If you are a fan, you'll love it. If you aren't a fan of Levon's, you will be when you finish this book.
