You can't quite say that he's done it all. But it's probably fair to say that if Leon Russell hasn't done something, it might not be worth doing. The all-around icon has accomplished so much during his roughly 50-year career, from playing as a session musician to owning his own record company, and he's certainly collaborated with some of the best in the business, including Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, John Lennon and B.B. King. He's an amazing man — and you'll likely agree with that assessment if you attend one of his local shows.
