Elton John- Levon- Foxboro MA 9-6-93

Thirty years ago this month, the virgin woods surrounding Henry David Thoreau’s legendary On Walden Pond, a genesis for the modern ecological “green” movement, was being threatened with clear-cutting by real estate developers. Don Henley, as pragmatic as he is talented, knew that “money talks”, so he organized a plan to save Walden Woods by raising awareness and money to buy it back. The cornerstone of the plan was a star-studded benefit concert, and no star shone brighter that day than Elton John and his crackerjack band doing “Levon”. –Redbeard
