That's what I was thinking. I haven't read Levon Helm's book but the bad blood between Helm and Robertson is legendary and I'm sure both sides are like night and day (much like a recent dispute I've had with a friend, lol). I know Robertson has gotten the lion's share of the songwriting credit but judging by his solo work, he probably deserved it. Anyway, it's sad things ended ugly for them but for me it doesn't take away from the magic the film captured. Or maybe ignorance was bliss...

I didn't mean to imply that I was judging Robbie in a negative light. If true, it's unfortunate their relationship soured the way it has. And there are usually more than two sides to every story.

I know there are two sides to the story, and the entire book isn't about Robbie. In fact, Levon only gets negative about Robbie when the Band starts to end. It has colored the way I look at The Last Waltz, though.

The book also has some fascinating parts about Dylan and his first few electric concerts.

Understandably so...just knowing there was conflict behind the scenes.

I haven't watched all of them so I don't know which is the best but I know that Metallica's Some Kind Of Monster has to be one of the best!
