Levon Helm is the drummer-singer for The Band.

That's not a typo. His band's name is The Band.

Sadly, he has cancer. And things aren't looking good.

A message appeared on his website, saying:

"Levon is in the final stages of his battle with cancer. Please send your prayers and love to him as he makes his way through this part of his journey. Thank you fans and music lovers who have made his life so filled with joy and celebration… he has loved nothing more than to play, to fill the room up with music, lay down the back beat, and make the people dance! He did it every time he took the stage."

The saddest part is he already beat cancer once.

He was diagnosed with throat cancer in the late 1990s and beat it. He even eventually recovered his singing voice!

But now things don't seem to be going very well.

Our hearts and thoughts go out to Levon, his family, friends and fans.

Wishing you peace.
