Levon Helm 1940 – 2012

Levon – It is an honor and a privilege to have been a part of your brilliant career and to be able to share your music with the world. It gives us enormous pride that we worked alongside such a legend as you won your Grammy Awards and were recognized as a true music icon. The intensity of joy you radiated was only matched by your unending smile. Thank you for being the back beat in musical history for so many. Thank you for being the backbone of positivity for everyone who crossed your path. That’s always been a testament to what you’ve inspired over the course of decades through your music and integrity. When we’ve witnessed a Midnight Ramble, you were gracious and kind—and always brimming with music. You hold a special place not just in our hearts, but in the hearts of millions of others. Thank you for your music. Thank you for your friendship. Thank you for your joy and generosity. We are forever grateful that you joined our family.

With our love – Vanguard Records/Welk Music Group
