One of the great session players. A truly classic performer who played on so many of our favorite songs over the past 50 years. May he rest in peace.

Elton John says Leon was the inspiration for the way he plays piano.

I strongly recommend the album Elton & Leon made together, The Union. RIP.

He wrote Delta Lady for Joe Cocker and helped form the band Mad Dogs and Englismen. Leon wrote songs for just about everyone in the biz and played with hundreds of top musicians around the globe for over 50 years, including George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, Badfinger, The Carpenters, Dave Mason, Frank Sinatra, Chuck Berry, just to name a few. He left quite a legacy. He was also a member of The Wrecking Crew in the 1960s whose members played on hundreds of hits from that era.
