The Band: Life Is A Carnival

Jeff Tamarkin, Goldmine, 26 July 1991

THE QUINTET KNOWN as the Band never did get back together in that same, familiar aggregation. To this day, however, there is a band called the Band, with a new album due on a new label, Sony Music (formerly CBS), this fall. None of the five original members exactly disappeared from sight following the Last Waltz in 1976, but neither have they made many headlines - with the exception of one tragic event, the 1986 apparent suicide of keyboardist Richard Manuel.
