Robbie Robertson - Testimony book review

Album Review

One man’s Band

Robbie Robertson was The Band’s main songwriter, guitarist, business brain. After life-changing shows by Otis Redding, Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters, his breathtaking anecdotes can frustratingly lack atmosphere and cultural resonance – including facing hostile crowds in Dylan’s electric band, being visited by Beatles during 1966’s cataclysmic UK tour and hanging with Brando and a pre-Jimi Hendrix.
