Inside Levon Helm Studios is the closed casket where Helm rests.

A visitor to the public memorial will get in line at Levon Helm Studios. The line moves quickly. A visitor will then walk inside, through the lower level, past pictures of Helm and his band.

Then upstairs, and past Barbara O'Brien, Helm's manager, and into the main room of Levon Helm Studios. Helm's Gretsch drums sit where they've always sat, at the right end of the stage. In the center is Helm, inside the closed casket, surrounded by flowers. Soft music plays, and a slideshow reveals photos of Helm with his wife, Sandy, daughter, Amy, grandchildren, and others.

Hundreds of Helm's fans and friends have congregated on Woodstock for today's public memorial. Upon entering Levon Helm Studios on Plochmann Lane, people are asked to turn off cell phones and cameras. There is no photography allowed.
Update 3: Levon Helm public memorial today; follow live | recordonline.com

Apparently, he'll be buried next to Rick Danko in Woodstock, NY.
