The first time I’d heard Leon Russell was on Elton John’s latest album. Needless to say, hearing his story and that gravelly Oklahoma drawl for the first time captured my attention.
Although it was a rather quick performance (with just a “hello” and “Thank you” from Leon), you could still see the talent that this man has. He’s a true legend.
Here are some of the photos from the concert. You can see the rest of them on my Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/james42/sets/72157627555296309/
