The Band was Bruce Springsteen at our house before we connected with Bruce. My wife and I had some disagreements about what music we liked, but we both loved The Band. Saw them twice in 1974. The next year we saw Bruce for the first time. We didn't go to The Last Waltz because $25 seemed like a lot of money then (they even included Thanksgiving dinner). Amazing that Garth Hudson, the oldest member of the group, is the only one still with us.
