Statement by President Clinton on the passing of Levon Helm

April 19, 2012 | New York, NY | Bill Clinton | Statements

“I was saddened to learn of the death of my fellow Arkansan Levon Helm. Levon was one of America’s great musicians. His music, with the Hawks, the Band, and throughout his career, and his standout performance in Coal Miner’s Daughter, touched a cord with me and with many Americans. He never forgot his roots. I was always grateful that he helped the annual Delta Blues Festival get off the ground. He will be deeply missed.”..

3. Wow -- I Forgot They Were Both from Arkansas

So even Bill Clinton had a special connection to Levon. It is really gratifying to see all the fans appearing and posting these eulogies.
