Robbie Robertson was the guitarist and principal songwriter in The Band. He grew up in Toronto and on the Brantford Six Nations Reserve before heading to Arkansas to join Ronnie Hawkins and the Hawks. He has produced many movie soundtracks for Martin Scorsese, including Raging Bull, and others, and continues to record as a solo artist. His most recent record, How to Become Clairvoyant, came out in 2011. Robertson is also one of the coauthors of the children’s book Legends, Icons & Rebels. His new memoir, Testimony, is the “moving story of the profound creative friendship between five young men who forged one of the most influential bands of all time.”, @r0bbier0berston
