The Band, who backed Bob Dylan when he went electric in 1965 and then turned out a half-dozen albums of beautifully crafted, image-rich songs, is now regarded as one of the most influential rock groups of the '60s. But while their music evoked a Southern mythology, only their Arkansawyer drummer, Levon Helm, was the genuine article. From the cotton fields to Woodstock, from seeing Sonny Boy Williamson and Elvis Presley to playing for President Clinton, This Wheel’s on Fire replays the tumultuous history of our times in Levon’s own unforgettable folksy drawl. This edition is expanded with a new afterword by the authors.

Levon Helm met Ronnie Hawkins at the age of 17 and formed what would soon become The Band. He lives in Woodstock, New York. Stephen Davis is the author of the best-selling rock book of all time, Hammer of the Gods.

  • Backbeat of the Band

    While Levon tells his side of the story and makes his case, he manages to tell the story of the band and all the other musicians who came in and out of the Band's world. They certainly were one of America's best exports! While the Beatles were being cute with their Yellow Subs and Pepper Sargents the Band was making some of the most original American roots music to ever be made! How much of the credit goes to Robbie Robertson, Garth, Levon, Richard, and Rick individually is only of importance to the Band members themselves. Even if Robbie claims credit we know that this band was the only true BAND and every member played an important role in that effort!
