PIXIES Cover Legend LEON RUSSELL On New Tribute Album – Hear Their Steaming Version Of ‘CRYSTAL CLOSET QUEEN’ Here

14 September 2023

Musical Nashville legend LEON RUSSELL, born
Claude Russell Bridge
in 1942, passed away in 2016,
at the age of 74.

He was an all-round songsmith who released more than 30 LPs during his 60-year career, mixing rock, country, gospel, bluegrass, rhythm and blues, southern rock, folk, surf and the Tulsa sound. In 2011 he was inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

To celebrate the genial, eccentric looking artist, a 10-track
tribute album came out last week, titled A SONG FOR LEON.

It includes great performances from artists such as Orville Peck, Nathaniel Rateliff, Leon’s daughter Tina Rose, Amy Nelson (Willie Nelson‘s daughter), Bootsy Collins, and more.
