I’ve always wondered why Robbie Robertson started that famous tune by The Band with the line “I pulled into Nazareth…” Was it an artistic twist on the old Christmas story? Perhaps they ran out of gas 20 minutes outside of their destination, or maybe he already had the plans for his signature series Martin Guitar floating around in his head?
