Jaime Royal “Robbie” Robertson is born on July 5th in Toronto, Canada. His father from Toronto; his mother, of Mohawk descent, born and raised on the Six Nations Reservation. At an early age, Robbie begins learning guitar from relatives during his summer visits to the reservation. His music career began in 1960 when Singer Ronnie Hawkins records two early Robertson songs [“Hey Boba Lu” and “Someone Like You”] for his Mr. Dynamo LP. Robertson then joins Ronnie Hawkins & The Hawks on lead guitar.
In late summer, in 1965, Bob Dylan is looking for a backup band for his first U.S. “electric” tour. Robertson is recruited to play guitar and after two shows the balance of The Hawks are brought aboard With Dylan, the Hawks play a series of concerts from September 1965 through May 1966, marking Dylan’s final transition from folk to rock. Robbie plays guitar on the John Hammond album So Many Roads.
Robbie Robertson has also had an active career in the film industry, beginning with the documentary by Martin Scorsese entitled “The Last Waltz” is released as is the album of the same name. The film has been hailed as one of the greatest concert films ever made.
In 1979, Robertson co-stars with Gary Busey and Jodie Foster in Carny (released 1980). He also co-writes, produces and composes source music for the film. Robbie becomes one of the first rock’n’rollers to seriously engage the medium of a film... Robertson creates background music and produces source music for Martin Scorsese’s Raging Bull also released that same year.
More recently, Robbie was featured and worked on the documentary “Rumble, The Indians That Rocked The World” released in 2017, which features amazing mainstream artists who pay homage to the Native Americans in music who influenced them...
