Leon Russell had passed away.
I saw Leon play the Byron Bay Bluesfest in 2011 quite by accident, as I didn't know who Leon was back then, I was just walking around and stumbled into the tent he was playing in and stayed to watch his act.
So, I would have been one of the people in the audience Leon was playing to in that 'Delta Lady' You Tube at the top of this post.
It doesn't seem that long ago to me and I never would have thought it was way back in 2011 that I watched him play.
And on the subject of time flying, that reminds me of the post I wrote the other day about the bird calendar I bought -
|My glass hummingbird and kingfisher plate|
Because Leon had a song about a hummingbird and another about a bluebird.
Thanks for the memories Leon.
