Pulled this off the Philzone. http://janefonda.com/

No. I do not read Jane's Blog but there is some cool pics in here from the ramble and the movie she's working on up in Woodstock. She was in a movie with Levon back in the 80's and they're still friends. I live on a street named Fonda Road and I always joke with my friends that the older vets on the block want to paint an" F "- before " Fonda Road" on the street sign.

Back to music.... I saw Levon open for Willie Nelson at Radio City last week. The band was great as always but I wish Levon would take more time off from singing. It was painful to hear but the crowd appreciated him trying. It was kind of rough but otherwise, he was his usual jovial self. Larry Cambell, Teresa Williams and Amy Helm were all amazing along with the killer horn section. I kind of miss Jimmy Vivino in the band though.

Willie was great as always but levon brought him out for the Weight and he missed his verse. He made up for it with a solo in that crazy unique guitar style of his. Overall a good night of music. I passed up Tom Petty at MSG and Further at Nokia for Levon and Willie. No regrets at all.

Grateful Dead's Phil Lesh, Jane Fonda "Ramble" in Woodstock
AUGUST 1, 2010

Former Grateful Dead bass player Phil Lesh performed at Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble house concert in Woodstock Saturday night, for a capacity crowd that included Academy Award-winning actress Jane Fonda.

Lesh's appearance was unannounced. He led a band that featured his two sons, Brian and Grahame, on guitar; Larry Campbell on guitar, fiddle and pedal steel guitar; and Justin Guip on drums. Guip is the chief engineer at Levon Helm Studios and regularly sits in with the Levon Helm Band. Larry Campbell is a former guitarist for Bob Dylan and music director for the Levon Helm Band.

Helm for decades was the drummer, mandolin player and vocalist for The Band.



Lesh and Helm were members of two iconic rock bands, each of which redefined American music. The Band and the Grateful Dead have both been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and, though each has disbanded, their music lives on through Lesh and Helm, both of whom tour regularly.

Saturday night marked the first time that Lesh and his two sons performed as a band in public. They tore through a set of Grateful Dead standards, including "Deal," "Dire Wolf," "Cumberland Blues" and "Friend of the Devil." Lesh also sat in with the headliner, performing on Grateful Dead songs that are regularly played by the Levon Helm Band, including "Shakedown Street," "Tennessee Jed" and "Attics of My Life."

Lesh and his two sons also sat in with the Levon Helm Band on the Grateful Dead song, "Brokedown Palace.'

"Shakedown Street" gave three rock music legends a chance to perform together, as Donald Fagen of Steely Dan, a Woodstock resident who performs on a regular basis with the Levon Helm Band, sang lead while Lesh and Helm held down the rhythm.

Fonda was joined at the Ramble by Academy Award-nominated actress Catherine Keener. The two actresses have been in Ulster County for several weeks, filming a new movie, "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding." Fonda and Helm, an established actor as well as a musician, starred together in "The Dollmaker," a 1984 television movie.

Fresh off a performance with Furthur at Connecticut's Gathering of the Vibes festival, Phil Lesh rocked Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble Saturday night. The former Grateful Dead bassist unveiled a new band at the surprise performance that featured his two sons and jammed with Steely Dan's Donald Fagen, as well as the evening's host.

The capacity crowd at Levon Helm Studios which included actresses Jane Fonda and Catherine Keener and Phish bassist Mike Gordon erupted when Lesh was introduced. "This is so cool," Lesh said after arriving onstage. "Thank you, Levon, for getting this together absolutely."

Check out photos of Furthur from the intimate Nateva Festival.

Lesh then got to work performing more than an hour of Grateful Dead standards. Lesh handled vocals and bass, while his two sons, Brian and Grahame, sang and played guitar. Larry Campbell contributed vocals, fiddle, guitar and pedal steel and Teresa Williams joined in on vocals. Lesh's signature, seismic bass notes could be felt through the floor as the impromptu band tore through "Deal,' "Dire Wolf," "Friend of the Devil," "Goin' Down the Road Feeling Bad" and "I Know You Rider."

Lesh beamed and offered musical guidance to his sons, who showed off refined guitar chops, although the three-part harmonies they shared with their father on many of the songs stole the show. "I have to say," Lesh said after introducing his sons, "this is the proudest moment of my life."

Keep up with Rolling Stone's hottest rock photos in Random Notes.

Lesh watched the Levon Helm Band's set and sang along from his seat behind Helm's drum kit on "Deep Elem Blues," which the Grateful Dead performed years ago. Lesh also played bass on several Dead songs that are part of the Levon Helm Band repertoire, including "Tennessee Jed" and "Shakedown Street." Fagen, who often plays with the Levon Helm Band, took over lead vocals and piano for "Shakedown Street."

Lesh also joined Campbell, Williams and Helm's daughter, Amy, on the Dead tune "Attics of My Life" and the Lesh family sat in for the set closer, "The Weight," with Grahame and Brian each taking a verse.

Set list:
"Deal"
"Dire Wolf"
"I Know You Rider"
"Fennerio"
"Cumberland Blues"
"Friend of the Devil"
"Angel Band"
"Goin' Down the Road Feeling Bad"
"We Bid You Goodnight"
