Subject: Robbie Robertson and the Band breakup

Written By: Tom Radigan on 07/19/02 at 04:52 p.m.

I remember reading about the history of The Band and got the impression that there was a very bitter falling-out between lead singer Robbie Robertson and the other former members of The Band.  Could anybody please tell me exactly what the story was on this?  Thank you.

   While I haven't heard much of "The Band's" work, I am a fan of Robbie Robertson.  I can't seem to find anything about the specifics of Robbie's leaving the group other than vague references to all the usual suspects; drugs, alcohol, addictions, fatigue, alimony, etc.  I'm interested in knowing the gory details, myself.  I'll continue looking.
