Remembering the inimitable Leon Russell who we lost just last year on Nov 13 at the age of 74. LRussell was a major talent, releasing well over 30 albums during his career, and while he did get a lot of recognition during the first half of the 1970s, his star never did shine quite as brightly as it should have in the ensuing decades. Elton John and Bernie Taupin's love of his music brought him some belated recognition, but it is sad that an artist's passing is sometimes needed to bring him the kind of accolades reserved for others. Elton John called 'A Song For You' an American classic, and its words are worth remembering now… .
