    Here's my choice:
    "Falling Down"
    Robbie Robertson
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MGXnMLESEA
    Robbie was the frontman for "The Band" writing songs that were
    sung and chorused by Richard Manuel, piano; Rick Danko, bass;
    Levon Helms, drums and Robbie.

    After the "Last Waltz" farewell concert in S.F. in 1976, they
    disbanded, stopped touring and recording. Truly the last
    waltz.

    Richard Manuel, with his great voice, a year or so later,
    tired of living off the road and alone committed suicide,
    blowing his head off.

    I was terrible shaken at the loss. I was angry that he
    couldn't cope and took a coward's way out. I had followed them
    for a long time. When an album came out I didn't need to hear
    it first... I knew it'd be great. I saw them in concert many
    times, played all their songs on my guitar.

    This song and video expresses Robbie's sadness at losing his
    friend and my music idol.

    I don't know the American Indian relevance in the video. I'm
    guessing he took refuge there during that time. He did record
    two albums with Indian music and song.

    [RIP] Richard Manuel

    You might want to revise that part about him blowing his head off too.

    But nothing could come close to Transformer. John Kuthe and I saw Lou
    in the late '70s. He was having a bad night, and twice kicked a
    monitor into the orchestra pit, and waited for the sound folks to put
    them back on the stage, bitching about the sound. Still, the show was
    great, but it was because Ian Dury and the Blockheads opened. They
    were terrific. They were touring the album, New Boots and Panties,
    one of the great oldschool punk albums, the one that featured Sex and
    Drugs and Rock and Roll and Sweet Gene Vincent

    it makes the show more intense when the performer gets pissed. You got
    lucky.

    I've always wondered about when he spills the wine... what is your
    interpretation?

    I once got my nephew a JC CD. I told him: I didn't know what to get you,
    so I gave you cash.

    "The meaning of "Hurt" is disputed; some listeners say the song acts like a
    suicide note with notes on depression, while others may find it to describe
    someone finding a reason to live.[1]"

    Holy cripe, why have I never heard that before? It should long have
    been the anti-war anthem. As I listened it reminded me vividly of the
    Vietnam War. Very sad, angry, and disturbing.
