    The drummer for The Band has died. People who enjoyed many different genres of rock enjoyed the Band, originally Bob Dylan's back up band.

    For those who might not have seen Martin Scorsese's documentary on The Band, "The Last Waltz", you might want to give it a look. Some great music.

    The Band was one of my all time favorites, I never got to see them play live.:(

    Well, to be strictly accurate, originally Ronnie Hawkins' back up band... ;)

    Great music.
