Strike up the band! It's Robbie Robertson's 69th birthday on July 5. The vocalist, who started his career as a member of Ronnie Hawkins' band the Hawks and would later become part of Bob Dylan's backing band, eventually got his time in the spotlight as the guitarist and one of the vocalists for the Band.
Robbie Robertson is set to receive a top honor from the Canadian government on Friday (May 27), as the former member of the Band will be appointed to the Order of Canada. In addition, Robertson will appear on the June 9 edition of 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.'
