Looking forward to this rare TV appearance by Robbie Robertson. One of Robertson's talents lies in creating characters we seem to know but haven't met. Robertson, after all, wrote “The Weight,” a song that almost didn’t make it onto “Music from Big Pink”; it was considered a backup in case an extra song was needed.

I recently posted on my Rockaeology blog at http://bit.ly/hArGWv the meaning of the song's lyrics. Surprisingly, Robertson says he did not intend the song to have a religious theme; his Nazareth is a small city in Pennsylvania. The characters -- Fanny, Crazy Chester and the rest -- are all people the group knew with stories of their own.
