Testimony by Robbie Robertson

Scott's picture

Rock on back to the late 1950s and early 1960s. Folk music was at its height but a new sound called rock and roll was beginning to make its appearance. These and other musical genres morphed and merged into a new sound, creating an exciting time for musicians and for those who enjoy listening to music. Then along comes Robbie Robertson, a very talented guitarist/songwriter from Toronto, who at 16 years old hit the road, paid his dues, and eventually created a unique musical group called The Band. In this behind-the-scenes biography, readers will get an up-close look at songwriting, the tribulations of forming and maintaining a band, and a band’s life on the road. A partial list of musicians Robertson interacts with includes The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix. This is an excellent and candid look at this musical genius and the world of music he helped create.
