|Leon's typical F*** You look, seeming to say if you like me great, if not I really don't care.||An autographed CD cover. Retrospective is an excellent greatest hits compilation.||Another F*** You look, complete with a Cat in the Hat style hat.|
|This comment of mine has over time evoked a number of
responses: "Note the laptop computer. What's on the screen, the set play list,
song lyrics, a naked woman, who knows?"
The general consensus seems to be similar to this May 2005 e-mail I received: "I sat about 10 feet from him at 2 concerts in Omaha and I can verify that the laptop has the lyrics to each song that he plays." --- Nick, AKA Bama Slim
Maybe Leon will fool us all someday and opt for the naked woman, who knows?
|Leon in his younger days. His dark eyes, and flowing hair always gave an air of mystery to the performer.||Leon's John Hancock, obtained at his `99 Virginia performance.|
|The following pictures were taken at Jaxx in Springfield, Virginia around April 1999. I have also seen Leon before at Liberty Lunch, and Antone's, both in Austin, Texas. I think Leon can best be described as having a presence, an aura. During his performances he does not dance around the stage, in fact he rarely leaves his high tech keyboard (complete with laptop computer), but the delivery by his unique voice, the lyrics, the look all add up to one heck of a delightful experience!|
|Dig the flowing silver hair. Still the rebel.||Leon at the end of his performance acknowledging the audience.||Banging on the keys and belting out a tune!|

|I've never seen a keyboard with more wires and doodads, but it has never gone on the fritz any of the 3 times I have seen him. Note the laptop computer. What's on the screen, the set play list, song lyrics, a naked woman, who knows?|
