Tribute to Levon Helm at Grammies

I didn't watch The Grammy Awards last night, but I heard they did a all-star tribute to Levon Helm (and other great musicians) who died this past year. No one was more deserving of such a tribute.

I found the video, and it's pretty darn good (especially Mavis Staples (who famously sang a verse with The Band in The Last Waltz (1976) and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes). Unfortunately, despite Levon's best efforts, Robbie Robertson will be getting all the royalties from the performance in Levon's honor. But, so what, it's a great song.
