Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Best known as lead guitarist of the cult favorite The Band, Robertson and his fellow "Bandmembers" worked together for Ronnie Hawkins and Bob Dylan before branching out on their own with their distinctive, driving synthesis of rock, folk, and jazz. After The Band's final performance together (recorded in Martin Scorsese's memorable 1978 "The Last Waltz"), Robertson moved into solo performing, record producing, and composing for films, including several collaborations with Scorsese (e.g., "The King of Comedy" 1983; "The Color of Money" 1986). Other credits include Wim Wenders' "Until the End of the World" (1991), Barry Levinson's "Jimmy Hollywood" (1994) and Jon Turletaub's "Phenomenon" (1996).Robertson has also acted occasionally, making his debut as a jaded carnival barker in "Carny" (1980), which he also produced and co-authored the story. He also played a small supporting role in Sean Penn's "The Crossing Guard" (1995)
