Robbie Robertson - Unbound

(...from the previous post) This is a short summary of his activities of the last 15 years... In 1995, in Rome, Robertson headlined an annual Labor Day concert festival with support acts Andrea Bocelli, Elvis Costello, and Radiohead. More than 300,000 fans attended the event. In 1997, Robertson received a prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Songwriters. From 1997 to 2000, Robertson stayed busy with side and film projects and documentaries.

On 9 February 2002, Robertson performed as part of the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, Utah. At the 2003 commencement ceremonies at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Robertson delivered an address to the graduating class and was awarded an honorary degree by the university. The same year he was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame.

In 2006, he announced plans to write his autobiography. He also recorded with Jerry Lee Lewis and Samuel Bidleman on "Last Man Standing" on track "Twilight". The same year, he received the Governor General's Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement.

On July 28, 2007, at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival in Bridgeview, Illinois, Robertson made a rare appearance on stage and played briefly. According to an article in the February 9, 2008 edition of the Winnipeg Sun, Robertson is said to be working with Eric Clapton on an album of new material. From MOJO magazine's May 2010 interview Robbie claims he is writing an autobiography.

Finally it must be said that the great artist has a remarkable discography.

About his personal life, Robertson married a Quebecoise journalist, named Dominique Bourgeois, in 1967. Together they have three children: daughters Alexandra and Delphine, and son Sebastian.
