Hey guys, sad news to share. Robbie Robertson, a famous musician from Canada, has passed away at the age of 80. He was a part of the legendary group, The Band. According to Variety, he passed away on Wednesday at his home in Los Angeles, with his family by his side. The people who manage his career released a statement about his passing.
When Robbie passed away, he was with his family. His wife, Janet, his ex-wife, Dominique, her partner Nicholas, and his children Alexandra, Sebastian, Delphine, and Delphine’s partner Kenny were all there. He also leaves behind his grandchildren Angelica, Donovan, Dominic, Gabriel, and Seraphina. Robbie had just finished working on his fourteenth movie music project with his friend Martin Scorsese, called 'Killers of the Flower Moon.'
