Levon's Obsessions

A gal whose obsessions lie within fat, sugar, carbs, caffeine, and beverages that could strengthen the heart or seal up a womb.

Levon Helm, My Dad’s Obsession

Frontman and drummer for The Band, Levon Helm passed away yesterday.  And although I didn’t know much about the musical legend and his group, I know he inspired Elton John to write the song that my dad was obsessed with before I was born.  I also know he made an enormous contribution to the musical world and gave a name for my dad’s newborn girl. He was interviewed with Modern Drummer describing the “right ingredients” for his work in music and film as “life and breath, heart and soul”, kind of like the ingredients that are thrown into some of my obsessions.  So I bid adieu to the legendary Levon Helm and ask GOD to allow him to rest in peace.  May 26, 1940 – April 19, 2012

    I simply thought it to be one of Elton’s greatest songs and that was almost 36 years ago. I’m a long time Elton John fan and decided to name my little girl Levon some 33 years ago. Lee’s dad……..Osei (osay)
