It's inexcusable that Leon Russell isn't in the RnR HOF given his body of work !

Leon is a genius who has covered so much ground in his musical path.He is,in addition to one of the greatest keyboard players ever a fine producer,songwriter,guitar & bass player,horn player,& a wonder to behold.R&R HOF is a fool's paradise run by the quintessential fool & egoist,jann wenner. Catch him live if you can.....& i'd love for him to sit in with ABB given his love for them & his mention of them & Macon on the 1973 release of "Leon Live",a tour i saw & was blown away by it.

Check this video out ladies. (Leon and J.J. Cale).

I'm secure enough in my machismo to say:
Leon was a damn handsome man in the day.

Anymore Leon is pretty crippled up requiring one of those little motorized carts to get around. His shows are auto-pilot affairs BUT if you can work your way up front and watch his hands move over the keyboards it'll take you right back to those close-ups of his hands in 'Mad Dogs & Englishmen' and 'Concert For Bangladesh.' It's almost spooky.

That was the same experience I had the last time I saw him , about a year ago.

He is constantly on the road. He's 67 ! Makes me ask why he does it? I wonder if he still enjoys it.

He shouldn't need the money should he, with that catalog of songs he's written?

I'm sure his royalties have decreased. With pirated downloads everyone suffers.

I saw him 2 years ago too. Somewhat mailing it in. The biggest problem was the sound mix; totally drowned out the vocals. It was sad to see someone with such a history backed by singers packing more around the gut than I do.
