The Band saved my life. In 1990, I was in a deep depression. For some odd reason, the only salve for my wounded psyche was The Band. It was a random choice from my absentee roommate's collection. I had never particularly liked them, thought the Cripple Creek song was inane. Just to show you where I'm coming from, bands like King Crimson were among my favorites, with a wide detour through punk rock. But Music from Big Pink soothed a running four day panic attack, then got me to sleep. Then I got a copy of the Basement Tapes and that was all it took. I wouldn't call them one of my favorite bands, more like a friend that took me through hard times.

I feel like I just stood up to speak at my first AA meeting. Shucks.

speak brother speak

funny, even with those tattered wrappings you don't look that old. Yes, Big Pink is primal.

Re: speak brother speak

I got mummified early, so I have a youthful cast that evaporates at short distances.

"Tears of rage, tears of grief. Why must I be the one who plays the thief?" Seemed to sum up the realizations I was having.
