Robbie Robertson Writes The Band Out Of Rock History
When the Band first started recording above and beyond the time they spent with Bob Dylan I fell in love with one of the most unique band’s and sounds of rock. The Band was more than just eclectic. They were completly unique. Rent the Last Waltz. Best rock movie ever made. Now The Bands mentor and leader Robbie Robertson has written a book about the musicians that made rock what it was in the 60′s and 70′s which is what made rock what it is today. And he left his own band out of the book called Legends, Icons & Rebels: Music That Changed The World.
“I understood perfectly that The Band was one of the biggest examples of combining music into a whole new flavour. We did that more than anybody else.
“It just felt like, ‘Hey, here’s the greatest recording artists of all time, the music that that changed the world… and I made sure I was in there.’ I didn’t want that weighing over me.” http://www.classicrockmagazine.com/news/robbie-robertson-writes-the-band-out-of-history/.
