The last time I saw Leon in concert his son was playing the drums. He looks just like Leon, except that he inherited his complexion from his mother, who is black.
The first time I saw Leon was the Mad Dogs and Englishmen show with Joe Cocker. It was like Leon's homecoming at the Brady Theatre in Tulsa and to this day, one of the best concerts I ever saw.
The show Sophia referred to was called Mazzeppa Pompazoidi's Uncanny Film Festival and Camp Meeting. That show was probably the coolest thing about growing up in Tulsa in the '60s.
A little more Leon trivia: The RB group The GAP Band (You Dropped a Bomb on Me) got their start as Leon's backup band on an album called Stop All That Jazz. Their original name was the Greenwood, Archer and Pine Street Band.

Proved to be a good show last night. Leon walked on the small stage with a cane but once he took his rightful seat at the piano there was no question he still commands. Two young men, but talented blues artist were on guitar, an older drummer and a younger sight impaired electric keyboard player. He began with Delta Lady, short while later, Lady Blue. Played a good bit of Stones, Ga On My Mind, and ended with Great Balls of Fire and Blue Suede Shoes. Played for near 2 hours, was after midnight getting home.

Seems like he's in competition with the Stones for oldest rocker still performing onstage. Leon is now 65! His son Teddy Jack, named after Gary Busey's character on Sartain's show, has also toured with his father, as have his sisters Tina Rose and Sugaree Noel.

Wow, his looks have changed quite a bit since I last saw him. That's some hair he's got going on there...

I remember Lady Blue being a big tune for him!
