Ever since Bette Midler sang 'One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)' to Johnny Carson' in 1992, it's become a tradition for a concluding late-night television show to be sent off with a musical bang. Last night (Feb. 7), Jimmy Fallon said goodbye to 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' in his own way, singing the Band's 'The Weight' with some help from the Muppets.
During the first week of January 1974, Bob Dylan went on tour with members of the Band for the first time since 1966, when their controversial shows heralded Dylan's move from folk music to rock. This new collaboration would prove to be no less volcanic.
One of the more distinctive rock bands of the '60s and '70s, the Band boasted a visual aesthetic every bit as striking as their music -- and now, a series of pictures taken by band photographer Elliott Landy for their first two albums is being collected into a book.
One of classic-rock’s most beloved original Christmas tunes, ‘Christmas Must Be Tonight’ by the Band, has been given a faithful new rendition by retro-pop act the Explorers Club. The track can be downloaded for free below.
When guitarist Robbie Robertson decreed the Band's demise following their legendary 'Last Waltz' concert, many fans assumed it was a unanimous decision. As it turned out, Robertson's former collaborators had other plans.
The Band's historic performances at New York City's Academy of Music on Dec. 28-31, 1971 have been collected before, on one of the '70s' best live albums, 'Rock of Ages.' But the five-disc 'Live at the Academy of Music 1971' (which includes a DVD) paints a more complete picture of the shows.
Released on Sept. 15, 1998, 'Jubilation' got underway, in the fashion of the Band's debut, with a moment of complex melancholy. But Rick Danko's vocal on 'Book Faded Brown' heralded the end of things -- not the beginning.
On Sept. 17, the Band will release a five-disc box set commemorating their famous 1971 concerts at New York’s Academy of Music. Ultimate Classic Rock has teamed up with Capitol Records to give away a copy of this fantastic historical document.
