  • Levon Helm Turns 70, Wants to Help Richie Hayward

    Levon Helm, one of the great all-time drummer vocalists, is about to blow out a shit load of candles this Saturday. He turns the big 7-0 on May 26, but he’s hosting a “Midnight Ramble” concert at his studio in Woodstock this weekend. It’s an annual affair for the former Band drummer, though this year he’ll also be helping out Little Feat stickman Richie Hayward, who is ill and apparently in need of some cash (a disturbing trend lately for our dudes), by raffling an autographed Yamaha kit. To enter the raffle, you can buy a ticket for $250 at levonhelm.com until 9 o’clock Saturday evening.
