1961 – 1964

Hawkins & The Hawks (which includes Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel and Garth Hudson) tour clubs in the U.S. and Canada and are included in performance packages with such acts as Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins and Jackie Wilson. Robertson’s unique bluesy rock style on such songs as “Who Do You Love” and “Come Love” ushers in a new era of guitar sound and significantly influences other musicians.
