Levon & the Hawks in early 1964, doing a photo session sharp-dressed in band suits and shoes, clean-shaven and well-groomed. This was just after they split from Ronnie Hawkins and went out on their own without a frontman. L-r: Rick Danko (20 years old here), Richard Manuel (20), Levon Helm (23), Garth Hudson (26 and still beardless) and Robbie Robertson (20). A year later, Bob Dylan asked them to be his backing group, together they would change the history of rock'n'roll. And as The Band these five guys went on to create the most haunting, beautiful music ever recorded. http://theband.hiof.no/
