The Late Great Leon Russell Crossing Paths With The Grateful Dead

RIP Leon.  I wish I would have seen you live.   But here's a funny tale that's seldom told. It's the day that Leon and the Dead were to play together in 1976.
It was to be a Tribute to the Apache. But it didn't happen. It was a fraud.
