Not Leon Russell, Say It Ain't So. By Geniusofdespair

First Leonard Cohen, Now Leon Russell. Leon Russell wrote one of the most beautiful songs I always cherished: A Song For You

My nephew Russell's father wanted to call him Leon. They settled on Russell. (My sister will deny this story--but I heard it). I will miss you Leon and I will miss you Leonard Cohen.  Below is "A Song For You"

That was great. It is amazing how some songs can transform us, and I needed to be transformed. This was always one of my favorites, and hearing it instantly brought back many memories. Thanks for sharing.
