Jakob Dylan

Jakob Dylan is certainly most famous for being the son of Bob Dylan and leader of the band the Wallflowers. In 2008, he released his first solo album, following four albums recorded by the Wallflowers between 1996 and 2007. After an initial stumble and subsequent release by Virgin Records, that band's 1996 Interscope debut, Bringing Down the Horse, became a massive hit on the adult alternative scene thanks to the songs "One Headlight" and especially "6th Avenue Heartache." The Wallflowers fit perfectly beside such similar (and successful) bands Toad the Wet Sprocket, Counting Crows, 10,000 Maniacs, etc. Despite releasing four more albums and continuing to tour, the band faded from the limelight somewhat as the '90s gave way to the '00s. Over the course of the band's activity, Dylan made sporadic guest appearances and contributed a song to the television show Six Degrees ("Here Comes Now") before embarking on a solo career with the release of Seeing Things in 2008.

  • Love for Levon: A Benefit To Save The Barn

    Various Artists

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 2 hr 40 min

    It only takes about 200 folks to rattle the rafters during one of the Midnight Rambles at Levon Helm's rustic studio in Woodstock, New York. But it took the 20,000-seat Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey, to hold his adoring fans for the LOVE FOR LEVON tribute concert on October 3, 2012. Helm, who died the previous April from throat cancer, organized his first Ramble back in 2004. People flocked to these intimate events Levon hosted, joined by an enviable core of Woodstock-based musicians and special guests. You couldn't beat the intimacy or the vibe. The Izod Center concert served as a fund-raiser and pledge to keep the Rambles alive. Dozens of luminaries from rock, soul, and country-artists as diverse as Roger Waters, Mavis Staples, and My Morning Jacket-gathered to pay their collective respects in an incredible final tribute to Levon Helm. This LOVE FOR LEVON extravaganza features 27 songs capped by a full group finale of The Weight, one of Levon's greatest moments on record. On this magical night, everyone felt the outpouring of love toward Levon. That evening, one at a time, or sometimes in pairs, music royalty took turns in the spotlight, performing songs associated with Levon Helm and the Band.
