Richard Manuel Biography (Wikipedia)

Richard George Manuel (April 3, 1943 – March 4, 1986) was a Canadian composer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist, best known as a pianist, lead singer, and drummer of the Band. He was a member of the original band from 1967 to 1976 and the re-formed band from 1983 until his death.

Manuel's singing alternated between a soul-influenced baritone that drew frequent comparisons to Ray Charles and a delicate falsetto. Though The Band had three vocalists sharing lead and harmony parts, Manuel was often seen as the group's primary vocalist.
