Elton John and Leon Russell to record together
The interesting news coming from the Leon Russell camp this week after we heard of his brain surgery was that recording for the album he has written with Elton John and Bernie Taupin is still going ahead.

The 67-year old pianist and composer and former member of Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs and Englishmen, wrote an albums worth of songs with Sir Elton John and Bernie Taupin in November, 2009 and had planned to record them at this time.

Then two days ago were heard the news that Russell had undergone brain surgery earlier in the week.

The statement at Russell's website announcing the surgery also stated Leon is looking forward to beginning studio recording sessions during the last half of this month through February with Elton John, Bernie Taupin and T-Bone Burnett'.

Russell is planning to tour in March.
