In 1976 Robertson, who had grown tired of touring, convinced the rest of The Band to retire from live performances. The idea grew into a farewell concert in which The Band would play along with other artists that they admired and had influenced them. That idea further developed into a feature film of the concert, to be made by hot young Hollywood director Creator/MartinScorsese. The concert, called "Film/TheLastWaltz" and held in San Francisco on [[UsefulNotes/ThanksgivingDay Thanksgiving]] night 1976, featured the Band playing their own music as well as playing alongside guests that included Dylan, Hawkins, Music/JoniMitchell, Neil Diamond, Music/NeilYoung, Muddy Waters, Music/EricClapton, and Music/VanMorrison. ''The Last Waltz'' album was released in 1978 along with Scorsese's film of the same name. It has been regarded ever since as one of the best concert films ever made. Levon Helm was embittered by the experience, however, charging that Robertson pushed the whole project in an effort to launch himself into a movie career, and that Robertson manipulated his good friend Scorsese into presenting Robertson as the frontman of the band. (The film does indeed include quite a bit more commentary, and in-concert camera time, from Robertson than from any of the other Band members.)

* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: Their music frequently draws from a variety of genres including folk, blues, country, gospel and R&B.



* NewYearHasCome: ''Rock of Ages'' was recorded, in part, at a New Year's Eve 1971 show. (Garth Hudson incorporated "Auld Lang Syne" into his performance of "The Genetic Method" right as the clock stuck midnight and 1972 began, to the delight of the audience.)
