RIP Levon Helm

April 19, 2012

Sometimes I hate social media. Sometimes I would like to be kept in the dark and not get instant news delivered to me. Sometimes I would love to have a bad news filter installed on the Internet.

I just got this Facebook update from Levon Helm.

Levon Helm passed peacefully this afternoon. He was surrounded by family, friends and band mates and will be remembered by all he touched as a brilliant musician and a beautiful soul.

I know that me not getting that news doesn’t change the fact that a truly great musician has died, but ever since I heard he was sick, I have been hoping to hear that he made it, that he miraculously recovered, and that he’s back behind those drums doing something magical. Now I’m sad to say I can stop waiting for good news.

Cancer sucks.
