    Totally agree, they were one of my top three favorites. Wonderful stuff, even with a few technical issues to fight their way through.

    Get him with a choir. Saw him at Glastonbury in 2010 and it was inspired. There are some YouTube clips "Days", "Waterloo Sunset" and "Victoria" stand out in my memories. Great stuff.

    No one will ever sing it quite like Levon could. But, it was heartfelt (even if not note perfect).
    I agree that it was terrific to have them pay respects like that.

    The airlines don't like that. Odds are they wil cancel your return leg. They do that to stop people from doing what you're considering and getting off somewhere other then your booked flights.
