This has been an unprecedented year for loss in music. We can lose two or three hall of famers in a year, but TEN? On the heels of the loss of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen comes the news this morning (11/13) that Leon Russell died early this morning in his sleep at his home in Nashville. Leon Russell was a one-of-a-kind performer, a highly in-demand session musician and songwriter (he wrote one of George Benson's biggest hits, "This Masquerade") as well as performer on his own. His list of classic songs ranged from the love balled "A Song For You" to the rocking "Delta Lady," which he wrote about Rita Coolidge. Russell was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. He continued to be relevant, recording and touring with Elton John in 2010. Farewell to Leon Russell, who was 74. Here's his great song "Delta Lady":

I would say it has nothin against r&r just time doing its business. But you got wondering what is coming next and to find out had to go searching which told me something right there! We can't get stuck in the past. So went looking and found a first time listen, hello there, David Gray's enter lightly. Not too bad.
