Bye Leon, Bye Mose

Obituary time again alas, as two fine American musicians no longer walk among us. A couple days ago, I was informed that Leon Russell had died. The flamboyant southern swamp rocker was 74. And I just got the sad news that the incomparable Mose Allison has passed away as well. The influential jazz/blues pianist and singer died yesterday at 89. Miss 'em both.
