From the moment I got the phone call at 7:30AM on that Sunday morning until now (and forever more), my life feels a little bit emptier than it did before that phone call. It's still hard to grasp that I will never be planning any vacations around your travel schedule. That was the highlight of my year - seeing where we would be going, visiting new places for Gary and me and always knowing we were in store for some fantastic music. I don't enjoy videos of you as much as I used to - they just seem to make the hole a little larger. I can't even begin to imagine the depth of what Jan, the girls and the rest of your family are experiencing. Rest In Paradise dear Leon - until we also get "Over The Rainbow" and once again, hear the kick-ass heavenly rock and roll band you've put together. Always in my heart.

I have listened to his great song "A Song for You" many times and have thought it was written for a special lucky lady in his life. Recently while enjoying this classic musical story my mind went in a different direction and the thought came that he may have been singing this to Jesus. It fits perfectly if you listen close. Now I can't hear it without believing he wrote it for and sang it to Jesus. It always has made me cry, but now it always makes me want to repent and sing it with him to Jesus. Thank you Leon! Jokingly...I kid myself into thinking he wrote two songs for me; "Tight Rope"(first wife) and "This Masquerade"(second wife). Thanks again! Love you!

Yesterday I spent the day remembering Leon on his birthday Watched the SNL episode and other filmed concerts. I still can't believe I will never get to sit in the audience and be mesmerized by Leon's talent again. To his family - I heard Leon was writing songs while he was recuperating. I hope you have plans to have those published on a cd - the boys in the band and perhaps Bruce Hornsby or John Fullbright on vocals and piano? What a wonderful gift to his memory it would be! Keeping you all in my prayers always. Thank you Leon for sharing your amazing God given gift of music with us.

Still missing you and thinking of you every day. I can't imagine how your actual family must feel. I can only hope that you have a sense of just how meaningful your persona and magnificent work remain to so many people.

May God bring Mr. Russell's family the peace and comfort that only He can, and may his family rest assured that Leon's legacy is and will remain intact. I know his greatest wish was to write a standard, and I also know that that wish was granted manifold. I had the privilege of seeing Leon on a number of occasions, the first of which was in Macon, GA on the Wedding Album tour. There were only a handful of comers (since interracial relationships were, and still are) taboo in the deep South. With his usual grace and panache, he asked the house lights be turned up so he could see his fans scattered throughout the 11,000+ capacity and simply requested, "Well, bless y'all's hearts. Come on down here, right here in front. We gone have us a time." And boy, did we! Next time was at a little club, also in Macon, called Liz Reeds, upstairs, about 300 seats. As he was wont to do, he began promptly at 8:00, segued seamlessly through an hour-long set and stood, bowed and exited, but not without looking at me, with that wuthering look of his as if to ask, "You didn't enjoy that?; why ain't you standing like all the rest?" -- he had no way of knowing I had ventured out with the worst influenza I'd ever had, just to see him... and, again, it was so worth it! And the last time I saw him was in July 2015 at the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta. My husband John, my daughter Melissa, our friend Larry, and I stood in line around the block til the doors opened and we were allowed in. Melissa, 24 at the time, was by far the youngest in attendance, and she fell in love with the Master of Space & Time as did her mother and myriad others. Out of character for him (or so I thought), he bantered with the audience, speaking of the time he met Elvis, the wife whose name he would not utter, his love and admiration and homage "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" to Andre Crouch and God. Had I known that was to be the last time I'd see him in THIS world, I'd have, against my nature, waited outside his bus like the groupie that I am, refusing to leave until I gained a moment of his precious time and had him autograph my tee-shirt (Leon Russell Birthday Bash 1994). I hope his family knows that an American icon he truly was and that they are comforted in knowing God called him home in His perfect timing. I love you all, and am eternally jealous that you knew him and I didn't.

I agree with your comment about had you known it was the last time you'd see Leon, you'd have waited outside his bus. I would have too!! I think back to my last concert of Leon's and I SO wish I had done this. I just figured "Oh, there will be a next time". Sadly, that time on THIS earth will never come. But I will see him in eternity! Miss you Leon! :-(

I have listened to your music since the 70's. God Bless your soul and may you be singing with the Angels now.
My favorites are Delta Lady and Back to the Island.
You will be forever missed on earth and may I catch up to you in Heaven.

I was in my car on Sunday going to work when I learned that Leon Russell had passed away. He was one of the best arrangers, songwriters, and pianists who has ever lived. The best example of his excellent piano work can be heard on Badfinger's song Day After Day. He was a great inspiration to me since I was 13 years old, I first saw him in the Mad Dogs & Englishmen film. I miss him greatly. Leon is the one playing the tenor horn part on the studio version of A Song For You. What a great talent he was.
