Videos by American Songwriter


From reader Steve Burns, in repsonse to the story Songwriters Hall Of Fame Unveils 2010 Nominees:

Leon Russell. FINALLY. His discography is so extensive, and his songs so widespread, and covered, he should have been here, and the R&R Hall of Shame years ago. Way to go!

Members should have no problem making the decision to pay tribute to the man, the legend, the Master of Space and Time.
