Rolling Stones piano player Chuck Leavell and Big Wave Dave and the Ripples are going to record the Bob Dylan song "Like A Rolling Stone" for a special PBS show. The show is called "The American Forest With Chuck Leavell"

Leavell, who studied forestry while he toured, uses the show to talk about nature and how to conserve the forests we have. Chuck Leavell, the host of the show, travels across the country to interview people who are passionate about the gifts we get from our woods.

Leavell is a former member of the Allman Brothers, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, a founding member of Sea Level, and has toured and recorded with the Rolling Stones for the last 40 years.
