I spoke with Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Robbie Robertson about his days with The Band, losing Levon Helm last year, and his new book Legends, Icons & Rebels: Music That Changed the World. Robbie also shared personal stories about everyone from Buddy Holly to Eric Clapton.
Robbie is also on the board for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, so he is involved with the nominating and induction process. I asked him about the controversy that seems to happen every year when certain bands are nominated and others are snubbed. He had a lot of interesting things to say about how that.
