Take back The Last Waltz! I am glad they are turning this into something cool. My generation grew up on that show!

Hey, gomez!! How did Levon feel about THE LAST WALTZ?????

Levon HATED the Last Waltz. HATED IT. Read “This Wheel’s on Fire” for the full story. In fact if you were ever lucky enough to attend a Midnite Ramble and meet the man himself you were prompted by security with two warnings: Don’t ask him about Robbie Robertson and don’t ask him about The Last Waltz.

This will be sick. Everyone knows Levon hated the last waltz. What’s your point?
