Rick Danko

Richard Clare Danko was a Canadian musician, bassist and singer, best known as a member of The Band. Danko was born on December 29, 1943 in Blayney, Ontario, a farming community outside the town of Simcoe, the third of four sons in a musical family of Ukrainian descent, he grew up listening to live music at family gatherings and to country music, blues and R&B on the radio. He liked country music, his mother would let him stay up late to listen to the Grand Ole Opry on the radio, his musical influences included Hank Williams, the Carter Family and Sam Cooke. He drew inspiration from the music of his eldest brother, Junior. Danko's second-eldest brother, was an accomplished songwriter, his younger brother, Terry became a musician, he made his musical debut playing a four-string tenor banjo for his first-grade classmates, while various sources differ all suggest he was headed to a professional career early. One report has him forming his first "Rick Danko Band" at age 12 or 13, another reference mentions that by age 14 he was putting on country & western shows with his brothers, Maruice Jr. Dennis and Terry, using various group names..

It is written that he started a band at that age with his eldest brother, Maurice Junior and a local high school teacher on drums. This trio performed country music and R & B at local dance halls, sometimes rented themselves and other events; the group, "The Starlights", expanded to included accordion, second guitar and "a girl singer", expanded their repertoire to include polkas for newer European immigrants. By age 17 a five-year music veteran and having left the Simcoe Composite School and working by day as a butcher, booked his band The Starlights as the opening act for Ronnie Hawkins, an American rockabilly singer whose group, the Hawks, was considered one of the best in Canada. Hawkins invited Danko to join the Hawks as rhythm guitarist. Around this time, Hawks bassist Rebel Paine was fired by Hawkins, wasting no time, ordered Danko to learn to play the bass, with help from other members of the band. By September 1960, he was Hawkins's bassist, using a Fender VI six-string bass switching to a Fender Jazz Bass.

In 1961, Danko with drummer Levon Helm backed guitarist Lenny Breau on several tracks recorded at Hallmark Studios in Toronto. These tracks are included on the 2003 release The Hallmark Sessions. Soon joined by pianist Richard Manuel and multi-instrumentalist Garth Hudson, the Hawks played with Hawkins through mid-1963. An altercation that year between Danko and Hawkins led Danko, Levon Helm, Robbie Robertson and Hudson to give two-weeks' notice in early 1964, they parted ways with Hawkins on reasonably amicable terms; the group had been planning to leave Hawkins and strike out together as a band without a frontman, as a team of equal members. Danko and the former Hawks performed as the Levon Helm Sextet, with saxophonist Jerry Penfound became the Canadian Squires, after Penfound left, were billed as Levon and the Hawks. Playing a circuit that stretched in an arc from Ontario to Arkansas, they became known as "the best damn bar band in the land."By 1965, with two singles under their belt, recorded as the Canadian Squires, they met the legendary blues harmonicist and vocalist Sonny Boy Williamson and planned a collaboration with him as soon as he returned to Chicago.

The group went on to play a four-month stand of gigs in New Jersey afterward, but Williamson died two months after their meeting, the collaboration never happened. In August 1965, Mary Martin, an assistant to Bob Dylan's manager Albert Grossman, heard the music of the group known as Levon and the Hawks. Grossman introduced the band's music to Dylan, impressed; the group was performing at Tony Mart's, a popular club in Somers Point, New Jersey, Grossman's office called the club to speak with Levon and the group about touring with Dylan. Helm was not happy to be backing a "strummer" but reluctantly agreed, the band became Dylan's backup group for a tour beginning in September; the tour, became too much for Helm, who departed in November. Through May 1966, Dylan and the remaining foursome traveled across America and Europe. After the final shows in England, Dylan retreated to his new home in Woodstock, New York, the Hawks joined him there shortly thereafter, it was Danko who found the pink house on Parnassus Lane in Saugerties, New York, which became known as Big Pink.

Danko and Manuel moved in, Robertson lived nearby. The Band's musical sessions with Dylan took place in the basement of Big Pink, between June and October 1967, generating recordings that were released in 1975 as The Basement Tapes. In October, the Hawks began demo recordings for their first album, with Helm rejoining the group in that month, their manager, Albert Grossman, secured them a recording deal with Capitol Records in late 1967. From January to March 1968, the Band recorded their debut album, Music from Big Pink, in recording studios in New York and Los Angeles. On this album, Danko sang lead vocal on three songs: "Caledonia Mission", "Long Black Veil" and "This Wheel's on Fire." Before the Band could promote the album by touring, Danko was injured in a car accident, breaking his neck and back in six places, which put him in traction for months. While he was in traction, Danko's girlfriend, Grace Seldner, informed him that she was pregnant, he proposed from his hospital bed; when they married, Danko was still in a neck brace.

Rick and Grace divorced in October 1980. The Band made their concert debut at Bill Graham's Winterland Ballroo

Tadhg Kennelly

Tadhg Kennelly is an Irish sportsperson known for his top level careers in both Gaelic football and Australian rules football. He is the only holder of both an AFL Premiership medallion and a Senior All-Ireland Championship medal, the highest possible achievement in both sports, he has represented Ireland in the International Rules Series. Kennelly grew up playing Gaelic football with Listowel Emmets in Kerry, but moved to Australia to play professional Australian rules football in the Australian Football League, he is best known in Australia as the first Irish-born player to have received an AFL Premiership medallion and the first AFL player to represent Ireland against Australia in the International Rules Series. After Jim Stynes he is the second most experienced player associated with the Irish experiment. Kennelly returned to his native Listowel to play in the 2009 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship. On 20 September 2009, he started the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final as part of Kerry's All-Ireland winning side, scoring two points during the game and thus becoming the first person to win an AFL Premiership and a Senior All-Ireland Championship.

After achieving his dream, he returned to the AFL to play after missing one season. Kennelly was born in Listowel in 1981 to mother Nuala and father Tim Kennelly, a former All-Ireland Senior Football Championship winner with Kerry GAA. Tadhg grew up playing Gaelic football and was recognised as a talented underage player with Kerry GAA, he was scouted by a number of English football football teams, including Tranmere Rovers and West Brom, had under-age trials for the national team before being recruited by Blackburn Rovers. Within a few months he decided to return to Ireland, he first played with the Kerry minor team in 1997 when he won a Munster Minor Football Championship overcoming Limerick. He won a second Munster title after another win over Limerick, he missed out on three in a row in 1999. While still a minor he was part of the counties Under 21 team, he won a Munster title after over coming Cork in the final. A surprise loss in the All-Ireland final to Westmeath was his lot, he made a return to the Under 21 team in 2002, lining out in the All-Ireland semi-final loss to Galway.

In 1999, he signed a rookie contract with the Sydney Swans. After his debut in 2001, he became a permanent fixture in the Sydney line-up as a dashing rebound defender, wearing the number 17 guernsey. Kennelly earned an AFL Rising Star nomination in round 19 of 2002, consolidating his reputation as an upcoming young talent, he was second for rebounds from the defensive 50-metre arc in 2004. Kennelly became the first Irishman to win an AFL Premiership medal in 2005, after playing all 26 games for the Sydney Swans that year, he was earning $750,000, while playing for the Sydney Swans. The hype in Australia surrounding Kennelly's appearance in the AFL Grand Final was so much that Network Ten sent out its usual game-day boundary rider, Andrew Maher, over to County Kerry to visit Tadhg's family for the week and watch the Grand Final with them. Kennelly appeared in the 2006 Grand Final, but the Swans lost 85–84 to the West Coast Eagles. In 2007 and 2008 after several seasons missing only a handful of games, Kennelly suffered a series of serious leg and shoulder injuries which became major setbacks to his AFL career.

His knee buckled from a heavy tackle from the Melbourne Demons' Byron Pickett, causing an anterior cruciate ligament tear and seeing him miss several matches and matches due to complications. In 2008, he again injured his knee, injuring his shoulder, he was selected in the Dream Team for the AFL Hall of Fame Tribute Match, but withdrew due to injury. He was quick to recover and made an appearance for the Swans the following week, though again succumbed to the injury curse. During the rest of 2008, Kennelly's shoulder continually dislocated during games and his unorthodox methods of popping it back in was the subject of much media interest. On several occasions during his AFL career, Kennelly had expressed a desire to return home to Ireland and leave the AFL, as he would like to emulate the success of his father and win an All-Ireland Senior Football Championship medal with his native county's team, Kerry. In December 2005, Kennelly's father Tim died at age 51, it is believed. On 31 August 2006 Kennelly ended months of speculation by announcing he would be staying on with the Swans for a further three years.

Kennelly said that this would be his last AFL contract and that he would be returning to Ireland at the end of the three-year contract. In March 2008, Kennelly was reported to have announced that he would "definitely" return to Ireland in 2009 to play with Kerry, saying "I want to win an All-Ireland with Kerry." Kennelly announced his return to Ireland and Gaelic football in January 2009. Upon returning to Kerry, Kennelly was given a job as a coaching officer by the Kerry County Board, he played his first competitive game for the Kerry Senior team on 8 March 2009 when he came on as a substitute in the Irish NFL against Derry, there was speculation that he would be a member of the Kerry squad for the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship. He went on to win an Irish NFL medal; as Kerry had a number of injuries meaning that Darragh Ó Sé, Anthony Maher, Séamus Scanlon and Kieran Donaghy were all short of full fitness, Kennelly played in Kerry's first two games of the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship in June.
