William Goode’s Journal – Levon Helm

calum macdonald recording studio of the week levon helm 2

This week was a sad one for music. Levon Helm passed away at the age of 71 from cancer. He had a great career which of course blossomed with Bob Dylans backing band and then a massive act in their own right “The Band“.

He was a multi instrumentalist, actor and singer who contributed a lot of the great vocals on “The Bands” work. He will sadly be missed by his many fans.

As a little tribute to the man I dedicate this weeks “recording Studio of the week” to him. He had his own studios which was the home of the “midnight rambles” live studio sessions.

Enjoy this small peak into Levon Helms studios as we remember him and the pleasure he brought to us.
