flag france  * THE BAND, by Bertrand Bouard

     Levon Helm, Richard Manuel, Rick Danko, Garth Hudson and Robbie Robertson have honed their game and complicity since adolescence within the Hawks, under the orders of singer Ronnie Hawkins, then by wiping the plaster as Bob Dylanís backing band on his electric tours of 1965 and 1966 -a singular trajectory, often chaotic, which will remain so until its end in apotheosis: The Last Waltz, farewell concert immortalized by Martin Scorsese in 1976.
