Levon Helm to be buried next to former band mate

Levon Helm, the former Band drummer who died from cancer last Thursday [April 19], is to be buried next to his former band mate, Rick Danko.

Last night [April 26], 2,000 mourners attended a wake for Helm at his Woodstock home, according to Associated Press. Helm's closed casket, in the second-floor studio of the barn where Helm hosted his Midnight Rambles, was surrounded by flowers and flanked by his drum kit and a piano.

After a private funeral today [April 27], Helm will be buried in Woodstock Cemetery next to Rick Danko, The Band's singer and bassist, who died in December, 1999.
