Rock icon, Levon Helm, who released his second solo album, Electric Dirt in June, lost his voice earlier this summer while on tour. Doctors discovered a lesion on his vocal cords and attributed it to acid reflux. The lesion was then removed via laser. A biopsy was done and revealed NO CANCER. However, Levon has been placed on strict vocal rest in order for him to heal. The good news is that Levon WILL sing again following vigorous work with his vocal coach and the support of his family, friends and the incredible loyalty of his dedicated fans!
