Roll Away The Stone: Leon Russell gone to Glory

The news that Tulsa Mafia, rock, boogie, country & western, Funk, acid gospeldelic, Americana & New Orleans shuffle-master icon Leon Russell has walked on is far too immense for an artist & American of my freaky-deak, Dixie-fried orbit to comment about on the fly. So, look forward to my scribing & dialogues about how the loss of Leon is affecting me later this week. For now, I am just back from the prayerful march for #StandingRock in Manhattan with the Ramapough Lenape clan mothers & reflecting deeply on what has been a chaotic, sorrowful week in the music world & across Turtle Island. Of course, with a lil’ “A Song For You” on rotation – A’ho*

I’ve been so many places in my life and time
I’ve sung a lot of songs, I’ve made some bad rhymes
I’ve acted out my life in stages, with ten thousand people watching
But we’re alone now I’m singing this song for you
