Love to Levon and Robin

A few days ago it was announced that Robin Gibb had gone into a coma and was losing his battle with cancer.

And today comes news that Levon Helm is also in the last days of life.

This is entirely sad. Levon Helm is one of my drumming idols and Robin Gibb is Robin Gibb- vocalist, musician, good friend of John Bonham. We all have to go sometime but it's tough to lose the musicians you grew up with. Seeing the article headline about Levon unexpectedly threw me. I thought he'd beaten the cancer.
Ah, well.

Love to Robin and Levon, comfort to their loved ones.

It sounds like Robin Gibb has been suffering quit a lot these past few years. So sad.

Arleen- He's been through a lot. He managed to finish his "Titanic Requiem" though.
