Rocker Leon Russell Dies in Nashville At 74


Sad news. He was a fine musician and songwriter, both in the studio in collaboration with others, and as a solo act. George Benson’s cover of Russell’s song This Masquerade is still one of my favorites.

May he rest in peace.


RIP :gopray2:


Rest in peace.



I saw him in concert once. he was very talented. may he rest in peace.


I remember seeing him many, many yrs ago with only about 50-75 people there. Amazing performer.


Praying for the repose of his soul & for his family.


RIP Saw him many years ago at the Fillmore East.


Brilliant musician. Love the song, “A Hard Rain”. RIP Brother Leon.


We still have an album from the 70’s Wisp of the Willow:)
