Richard Manuel:
[describing how The Band got its name] Well, we were The Hawks.



Robbie Robertson:
And everything was fine, we were sailing along, and all of a sudden, one day The Hawks meant something else altogether.



Richard Manuel:
And it was right in the middle of that whole psychedelia. Chocolate Subway, Marshmallow Overcoat. Those kind of names, you know?



Robbie Robertson:
When we were working with Bob Dylan and we moved to Woodstock, everybody referred to us as the band. He called us the band, our friends called us the band, our neighbors called us the band.



Richard Manuel:
We started out with The Crackers. We tried to call ourselves The Honkies. Everybody kind of backed off from that. It was too straight. So we decided just to call ourselves The Band.
