To this day I still play and more importantly enjoy the "Mad Dogs" album, your double album and others. The concert you did in Brisbane Australia was the best I had ever seen. And I have seen quite a few over the years. Here in australia we seem to get only the best bands and artisits touring, and you my friendhad the best live concert I had been to. Just looking at your website and I cant believe the workload you still do in touring. Its great to see someone who still can perform with the best. Best of luck for the future.

Leon, I just wanted to thank you for all the great shows you put on over the years. My first was the Mad Dogs and Englishmen in Detroit and my last was at the Clearwater Theatre in West Dundee, IL, on March 7. You have been more than kind by signing autographs and posing for pictures. God Bless and Rock on. Also, I just wrote a letter to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame questioning "Where's Leon?" A couple of numbers from Leon.

Hey Leon, I see that you're playing Stephen Talkhouse in August. Any chance that you'll play elsewhere on Long Island or in NYC during August or September? We spend the summers up there and would love to see you perform again.

Love having you back. A large part of my life is music and you have been the missing staple/live force on the radio. Think God I have eveyrone of your past records (at least all the ones I have ever found). I would love to have a CD of your 'American' album and in particular the Elvis and Marilyn song. I loved them both and the way you connected them was wonderful. Ever think of re-releasing that album? Let me know I will be first in ling to buy it.

Been replacing my vinyl collection slowly and have just purchased Carney again. I had forgotten how good this album really is. This was and still is my favorite music. Takes me back to the 70's and my high school hippy days. I saw you about 10 years or so ago, can't remember exactly...70's damage you know, but you were here in Milwaukee for a fire fighters benefit concert. It was the weirdest thing, The Nelsons, America and you were on the bill. I came to see you perform and you did a version of "out in the woods" that was so fast that I hardly recognized the song. Thanks for being so damn good....

Went to the Culture Room on Saturday and was so disappointed that I couldn't stay to see the show. But, I was determined to see one more performance so I went up to Orlando on Sunday. Spoke to some of the band members who were really nice, and got lots of photos too. One photo of Leon turned out to be great. Anyway, Leon and the band made my day! It really is such pure pleasure listening to them perform. Hope they'll keep coming back to Florida so that I have a chance to see them again.

I saw Mr. Russell the first time in 1974 at Tampa Fl, the fairgrounds, along with War, Dr. John, the New York Dolls, and Rare Earth, Wolfman Jack was there and everytime he walked out on stage, he got booed off. The Last time was in 1989 in Knoxville, TN at a local bar, I look foward to seeing Leon play in Laurel, MS on March 13

Thanks for the great show yesterday here in Orlando. Over the years, your music has been a good part of my life. I snapped a picture of you leaving the show you might enjoy: http://flickr.com/photos/mikelevin/2290013394/

Your band rocked, too. Chris gave me some guitar pointers.

It's apparent you love what you do.

I am really looking forward to finally seeing you perform.
I have been a fan of your since the Concert for Bangladesh album and your accomplishments since then have been staggering. Probably prior to then as well!0.
I would have enjoyed seeing you in the Concert for George as you were noticably missing on stage.

I am looking forward to seeing you front row in Jupiter Florida in May.

I think your lyrics are among the best ever written by anyone. What was your inspiration for this Masquerade and who were some of your favorite artists who influenced you?


See you in /on Jupiter.

What a wonderful evening I have had with you and the boys!! I moved down from Memphis to Ft Lauderdale this past August and this was my best night of all. I will be turning 60 this year and you have already made it special. I met you after the concert and I thank you.

Holy Smokes !! Great Balls of Fire indeed !!

With much love and respect to the Shelter People, this latest version of the band will forever be referred to by little ol'/old me as Leon And The Pyro People.

OK, so maybe it is not the most imaginative name, but, I mean, these guys must be pyromaniacs the way they continue to torch venues/burn holes on/in each and every stage they play, night in and night out.

Along with friends on both coasts, I managed to catch Leon & Co. on six of the first seven stops of their tour a few weeks ago -- twice in North Carolina (Charlotte, Carrboro) and four nights in a row in Southern California (Malibu, Lancaster, Encinitas and San Juan Capistrano).

Needless to say, but I will anyway, they fried/cooked/smoked/shredded wherever they played.

If you haven't seen this latest version, what we/fans are getting these days are what we have always got, only better: damn near electrifying performances -- 90 minutes of non-stop music: fast, loud and with perfect sound, yet another classic dynamite, smash-mouth Leon Russell Rock 'N Roll History Lesson manufactured by talented musicians who seem to genuinely be having a great time ....

Even though time don't mean that much to him, Jack is smiling and laughing as much as ever, so you know something is going right -- Jack, by the way, has now sung "LTGTR" in 2,339 consecutive shows -- and counting (not really, just made a number up) ... for real, though, Grant has never played the drums better ... the not-so-new new guys, "Can't Miss" Chris (lead guitar) and "Keep On Tryin" Brian (keyboards) are excellent and add another dimension to the songs and sounds we/many of us are familiar with.

Ben, the sound dude, consistently pulls it all together magnificently. One of the many things he excels in is his ability to anticipate and adapt the sound on the fly. The band could be playing their butts off, but if the sound is off, how would we know ?? In that regard/respect, Ben is The Ultimate Facilitator ...

For the record/CD/8-track/cassette/IPod/ MP3 player, etc., my little Leon Live tour was supposed to consist of seven of the first eight shows and five straight in SoCal, but the show at the Trump Super Bowl Party in which Edgar W. was slated to open, was cancelled an hour or so before it was scheduled to begin due to poopy weather (cold, rain, 40 mph winds, etc.).

Not even Ben, the Master of Sound And Stuff, had a chance this time around ...

What irked some was that the Trump concert/show was scheduled outside (under a big tent/canopy) with no contingency plan to bring it indoors.

Lots of folks we talked with who had paid the $110 or whatever it was to attend were fairly bummed -- said they were there mostly for the music ... since, however, it was a "donation" to a charity event, there were no refunds. Oh, well ...

Only "Leon" folks I knew were Don and Debbie Burns of lovely Los Alamitos, Calif. ... Don, as usual, had planned to "bribe" (haha) Leon into singing "Rainbow" -- this time, he created a cartoon-like picture of Trump defiantly pointing an index finger at Leon, saying something like, "You're fired if you don't play 'Rainbow' '' ...

Nice touch, but if Trump was going to dismiss anybody, it should have been the brilliant hires he made to set up the musical portion of what was a gala event, who obviously just figured it would be warm and sunny on a Palos Verdes peninsula this/that time of year (ummmmmm, DUH !!) ...

As for the appreciation stuff I tend to mention from time to time, it is pretty difficult to kick back and "absorb" anything when you are getting totally blown away by what is happening a mere few feet in front of you -- and that -- no surprise -- is what transpired each evening ...

Stop if you're read this before, but regardless if you know the songs and shows note for note, or are seeing Leon, a true musical genius if ever there was one, for the first time in a while/years, he continues to leave you/us/audiences not only impressed but in absolutel awe, screaming and begging for more at the end (love saying that).

Leon rocks everyone's socks off, whether we are wearing any or not ...

Whether he blabs much, or at all, whether he introduces the band or not, whether we stand or sit, we are all indeed very fortunate that Leon Russell is still doing what he always has done better than anybody and shows no signs of slowing down or letting up -- and, for that, how can one not be humbled, or, dare I say, appreciative ?? ...

Bottom line here is, as long as Leon isn't going to act his age on stage, neither am I off it ...
