      true dat. I was introduced to his music rather late in my music appreciation days, when I got around to listening to his records I fell hard. His vocal phrasing and style were incomparable and what a showman he was. I never saw him perform but a good friend of mine has several times and always ranked Leon as one of the greats in that respect. RIP Mr Russell

        2016 so far has been awful year, but I'm afraid the future will not get any better.

          He was pretty rough last time I heard him. If you don't own a copy of Mad Dogs it is a must have. A standard issue early A&M is fine. What a roster of talent.
          On the passing of the boomer generation rockers, we are marking our own time by this. These guys are aren't getting any younger. Bless them for what they gave to us at the height of their powers.

              I'm extra glad that I saw him again two years ago at Yoshi's in Oakland. He put on a great show.

              Enjoy the greats while you can - none of us are getting any younger,.
