Thursday marks 35 Thanksgivings ago (November 25th, 1976) that the Band played its most famous concert. Billed as The Last Waltz, the show at Winterland in San Francisco featured the group, along with an all-star guest list, in what became the farewell performance of the original quintet.
Among the friends on the bill that night were Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, Ron Wood, Ronnie Hawkins, Dr. John, Muddy Waters, Neil Diamond, Emmylou Harris, Joni Mitchell, and the Staple Singers.
