Not Better Late than Never

This is getting to be a challenge to deal with. Another one of our own has been invited to play in that “helluva band” on heaven’s stage.
Leon was here there and everywhere but his crowning glory (in my humble opinion) was far and away his leadership and effort conducting the mad musicians and singers of the late Joe Cocker’s Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour. The mother of all tours. The crown jewel of an era when it was all about the music……and drugs and sex……but mainly high octane music.
