The Band Garth Hudson

Former The Band star Garth Hudson has filed suit against his landlord to halt plans for an auction of the rocker's possessions.

Late last month (Feb13), belongings from the rock legend's archive were sold to the public at a garage sale staged by Kingston, New York landlord Mike Piazza, who claimed Hudson owed him more than $50,000 (Gbp31,250) in storage space fees.

He was planning to sell more stuff at an auction, but a New York judge has granted Hudson and his wife Maud a temporary restraining order, which prevents the sale of items at a planned 6 April (13) auction.

The Last Waltz Review


Extraordinary
The Band were one of the best rock groups of the '60s and '70s, creating a unique brand of music that incorporated elements of folk, blues, and soul -- ironically, at the time when those elements were being squeezed out of rock by groups such as Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.

Unfortunately, the Band's music didn't have much influence on the way future music would develop. But The Last Waltz, a concert film of the Band's 1976 farewell performance, remains an essential artwork. The film is a reminder that while they lasted, the Band (guitarist Robbie Robertson, drummer Levon Helm, keyboardists Garth Hudson and Richard Manuel, and bassist Rick Danko) was as good as any group in rock history.
