2016's brutality toward irreplaceable musical giants continues unabated.

Apparently he had bypass surgery this summer, and passed in his sleep early this morning.

Sad day, I've always liked his writing style.

He was a tremendous talent, both as a musician and a songwriter.

WOW, very sad indeed. I've been a fan since the "One for the road" album with Willie in 1979.
RIP Leon, you will never be forgotten.

Sad news. I got to see him warm up for Edgar Winter and Rick Derringer in 1989.
