Levon Helm’s Studio Confirms Wake Information, Drummer to Be Buried Next to Rick Danko

A public wake will be held for Levon Helm at his Woodstock, NY-are studio tomorrow. Fans and friends of The Band drummer can pay their respects between 10 AM and 3 PM ET. Personal vehicles will not be permitted at the studio, however. Parking will be available at three locations in Woodstock: The Woodstock Playhouse 103 Mill Hill Road, Woodstock, Cucina Woodstock, 109 Mill Hill Road and Andy Lee Field, Rock City Road, Woodstock.

Helm will be laid to rest in Woodstock Cemetery next to longtime Band bassist Rick Danko. The bassist’s death effectively ended The Band’s touring days in 1999.

We will miss you Levon, you are one of the greatest ever. Saw you with the Band in Nashville back in the 90’s touring for “Jericho”, and it ranks up there in my top 10 live shows. The world needs more musicians and genuine songwriters like Levon Helm and Rick Danko.
