Original Giclee Art Print Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of The Last Waltz 1976/2016
The Last Waltz was supposed to be the last live performance of The Band, but turned out to be their last recording, too.
Because of their pedigree (they were members of Ronnie Hawkins' band in the '50s and were Bob Dylan's backup band during the '60s), and because of their remarkable talent, the band's last gig had the royalty of rock, pop and blues sitting in. Bob Dylan, Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Van Morrison, Neil Diamond, Dr. John and many others graced the stage and filled the screen.
The critically acclaimed movie directed by Martin Scorcese did create some rancor within the band. For one thing, not everybody wanted to retire. The was also reportedly some bitterness about where the money went and who got the most screen time.

Legendary Canadian illustrator Bob Masse is one of rock's most seasoned and prolific poster artists, dating back to the '60s. But as his recent work shows, Bob's work is as cool today as ever. All the Masses we have are very nice -- ultra-mint with nice, bold signatures by Bob, mostly in silver ink.
His mastery of typography and composition and his illustrative skill and imagination combined with our choice of great bands from Bob's collection make these nicely-priced posters excellent gifts for a fan of any of these bands, or a great source for decorators looking for fine art lithography with interesting and relevant themes and subjects in a wide variety of color pallets. This is good stuff -- hand-signed and nice to have around at a terrific price.
