Arkansas-born Levon Helm may be most famous as the drummer for The Band, which enjoyed phenomenal success from 1968 to 1976. Their final performance was filmed by Martin Scorsese and used as the subject for the quintessential concert documentary, The Last Waltz. After being diagnosed with throat cancer, a series of radiation treatments left Helm with damaged vocal chords. While attempting to sing backup vocals for his daughter, Amy, he gradually regained the use of his voice. He jubilantly began work on his first solo album in 25 years, Dirt Farmer.
