Robbing America for a storyline thread

Barney Hoskyns, Times, The, 28 October 1991

ROBBIE ROBERTSON should be used to jetlag. He spent 16 years on the road as a member of The Band and knows only too well the toll it takes on one's health and sanity. But the man sitting in a London hotel room with a bad cold has not been on the road since The Band staged the glorious filmed farewell of The Last Waltz in 1976. The exhaustion, even on this short promotional jaunt across Europe, has taken him by surprise all over again.
