Bob Dylan - Bob Dylan's Emotional Tribute To Levon Helm

Bob Dylan has paid an emotional tribute to his close pal Levon Helm following The Band star's death on Thursday (19Apr12).
Drummer Helm lost his battle with throat cancer at the age of 71, prompting a wave of tributes from fellow rockers and Hollywood stars.
Now Dylan, who became friends with Helm when his first group The Hawks worked as Dylan's backing band in the 1960s, has added his own eulogy to the late star.
In a post on his official website, Dylan writes, "He was my bosom buddy friend to the end, one of the last true great spirits of my or any other generation. This is just so sad to talk about. I still can remember the first day I met him and the last day I saw him. We go back pretty far and had been through some trials together. I'm going to miss him, as I'm sure a whole lot of others will too."
