  • 20 years ago this week, The Band web site went on-line. The home page back then looked something like this. Your humble editor looked something like this. The site looks better now... It's been a bumpy ride over the last two decades, but well worth it. We are proud of what has been created here, by everyone involved in the project. All the friends we have made, the travels, the gigs, the wonderful encounters with musicians, key figures and fans over the years -- priceless. We're having a little celebration tonight.

  • Pre-order Sebastian Robertson's Rock and Roll Highway: The Robbie Robertson Story from amazon.com now!

  • From our Scottish friend Darren James:
    Just to let you know of a fantastic Last Waltz tribute band from Ireland. I saw them last year in Glasgow, and they are playing again on 30th May in Glasgow at the Pavilion Theatre. They are called 'THE GROUP'. They are excellent, they look the same and sound the same, and even have the guest stars and do ad libs. They only do occasional gigs in the UK, they do not do it for money. All Band fans should really check them out, one of my best gigs ever:
