• When: 8 p.m. Wednesday.
• Where: Tucson Arena, 260 S. Church Ave.
• Tickets: Sold out except for about 200 seats ($141 each) still available through www.ticketmaster.com.
• We saw him here last: Feb. 15, 2000, at the Tucson Arena. Sold out in 31/2 hours.
• We can't wait to hear him sing: Everything. The man has more than 50 charted singles. Thankfully, this tour is dubbed "Rocket Man - the Greatest Hits Live."
• New music: "The Union," a collaboration with legendary singer/songwriter/pianist Leon Russell, comes out in October.
• On the charts: John scored his first Top 10 hit in America with "Your Song" in 1971, followed soon after by "Rocket Man" and "Honky Cat."
His first No. 1 hit was "Crocodile Rock" in 1973, a song that started a streak of chart-toppers over the next three years that included "Bennie and the Jets," "Whatever Gets You Through the Night," "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds," "Philadelphia Freedom," "Island Girl" and "Don't Go Breaking My Heart."
John, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994 knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 1998, didn't top the charts again until 1997 when his Princess Diana tribute, a reworking of "Candle in the Wind," sold more than 35 million copies worldwide. It remains the biggest-selling single of all time.
• Most memorable tabloid/media moments: In 2005, he made international headlines when he and longtime partner David Furnish tied the knot.
• Most recent tabloid/media splash: John bucked an artists' boycott of Israel over the country's Palestinian flotilla fiasco and played a show in Tel Aviv last month.
A week earlier, the 63-year-old gay icon sang at the wedding of Rush Limbaugh, who loudly opposes giving gay men and women the right to marry.
• Last word: "The singles chart is not one I'm going to be in very often any more, so my view is to make records that fit my age (63). I don't think I'm going to do 'Crocodile Rock' any more." - July 7 in an interview with radio and TV personality Paul Gambaccini.

Elton John & Leon Russell catch our attention?

It's a little bit odd to sit here at Georgia Soul's (somewhat neglected) blogger desk to deliver such news, and as you'd expect, there won't be much attention given to either Elton John or Leon Russell given here in the future. However, maybe Elton John's time spent in Atlanta hasn't been poorly spent.

Mojo Magazine has verified some news, which had been circulating around the rumor mills for a couple of months now. Though we heard it from a reliable source, it is easy to understand why there was some hesitation to publish this news before it was official. The details are still somewhat sketchy, but Elton John and Leon Russell are either covering or sampling The Mighty Hannibal's hit "Hymn No. 5" on their upcoming collaborative album, "The Union". Says Mojo:



The Union was recorded at the end of 2009 with producer T-Bone Burnett. The record - a southern-fried mix of gospel, R&B and expansive ballads - features both Russell and Elton playing piano and singing, with a band made up of legendary drummer Jim Keltner, Tom Waits-connected guitar iconoclast Marc Ribot and assorted session hotshots. The record also features contributions from special guests including Neil Young, Booker T and incorrigible soul star The Mighty Hannibal.

Strange though this may sound, if this is indeed a full cover of the song and not just a sample, I'm (morbidly) curious to find out how they treat a Vietnam protest song in 2010, when it seems that everyone else in the world has forgotten about the current nonsense going on in Afghanistan, Iraq, etc. Alas, we'll have to wait until October 19 to hear it, most likely. Until then, here's Hannibal's version.

Who: Leon Russell
Where: Crown Room, Crystal Bay Casino (only 250 tickets available for seated show)
When: 9 p.m. Saturday, July 17 (doors at 8)
Cost: All seats $27
  Leon Russell, “pop music’s most anonymous big shot,” has written a song for everybody else.

And he still has “A Song For You,” Lake Tahoe.

Russell, who has played on, produced, arranged and written some of the most successful records in pop music history, returns to the Crystal Bay Casino for the fourth time Saturday, July 17. The Crystal Bay has made only 250 tickets available at $27 apiece for the seated show. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the show will follow at 9.

Russell teamed up with Elton John, another summer marquee name for Tahoe, for a recent project, and his Crown Room show comes on the heels of his performance with the Zac Brown Band at this year’s Grammy Awards, which took place just two weeks after his brain surgery.

While it was other artists who perhaps made the songs famous, Russell has written a number of influential Grammy-winners and No. 1 tracks. George Benson’s cover of “This Masquerade” was the first song in music history to occupy the top of the jazz, pop and R&B charts before the 1976 Record of the Year netted a Grammy. The Carpenters struck gold with Russell’s “Superstar,” Ray Charles covered “A Song For You,” and his “Delta Lady” helped propel Joe Cocker to fame.

Born in 1942, Russell began playing the piano at age 14 at a nightclub in Oklahoma, where he backed touring artists. Jerry Lee Lewis was so impressed with the performance of Russell and his band when they backed him at Cain’s ballroom in Tulsa that he hired them for two years of road tours. Russell later moved to Los Angeles and became part of the “Wrecking Crew,” an elite group of studio musicians including Glen Campbell and Hal Blaine.

Russell rose to prominence as a studio musician, producing and playing on sessions with Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra, the Rolling Stones, the Byrds, Ike and Tina Turner, Bobby Darin, Wayne Newton, Sam Cooke, Johnny Mathis, and Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. He also played on most of Phil Spector’s landmark records, helping the producer establish his trademark “Wall of Sound.”

“Leon was there for the solos and the fancy stuff,” session bandleader Jack Nietzsche said in a news release.

That’s Russell’s piano you hear on Jan and Dean’s “Surf City” and the Beach Boys’ “California Girls” and “Pet Sounds.” In turn, George Harrison played guitar on Russell’s first album, which led to the studio ace’s part in the pioneering benefit Concert for Bangladesh with the likes of Beatles bandmates Harrison and Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Badfinger and Ravi Shankar.
Billboard Magazine reported Russell as the top concert attraction in the world by 1973 and certified three of his solo albums — “Leon Russell and the Shelter People” (1971), “Carney” (1972) and “Leon Live” (a three-album set from 1973) — as gold. Russell’s opening acts included Elton John, ZZ Top, Willie Nelson and Charlie Daniels.

Ever a “ChameLeon,” Russell scored a hit record in Nashville under the pseudonym of Hank Wilson, which influenced other musicians in the genre. In the mid-’70s, he also founded Paradise Records, which spawned Concrete Blonde and Steve Ripley, later of the Tractors. Ripley and his band now make their home in the former First Church of God at Third and Trenton in Tulsa, which Russell converted into the “Church Studio.”

His country influence would extend even further after he teamed up with Willy Nelson for “One for the Road.”

These days, Russell is the head of his own record label, which began with three releases from its founder. With Elton John, he recently finished recording “The Union,” which is due out in October. T-Bone Burnett is producing the album, the first collaboration by the twosome since a 1970 concert at the Fillmore East, which includes guest appearances by Booker T. Jones and Neil Young.
Elton John will play Harveys’ summer outdoor concert series July 25.
