Is he a socialist? I'd probably like him if he was...

He's a musician, probably the most prolific one on the planet.

Here are two Number One hits written by LEON RUSSELL, which almost everyone has heard.
Few realize that LEON wrote them...he's been called "the music industry's most anonymous big shot".

Superstar

Long ago so far away
I fell in love with you before the second show
Your guitar just sounds so sweet and clear
But you're not really here, it's just the radio

Don't you remember you told me you loved me baby
You said you'd be coming back this was again baby
Baby baby baby baby oh baby
I love you I really do

Loneliness is such a sad affair
And I can hardly wait to sleep with you again
What to say to make you come again
Come back and play your sad guitar

A Song For You

I've been so many places
In my life and time,
I've sung a lot of songs,
I've made some bad rhyme
I've acted out my life in stages,
With ten thousand people watching
But we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you

I know your image of me is what I hope to be
I treated you unkindly, but darling can't you see
There's no one more important to me, darlin; can't you please see through me?
'Cause we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you

You taught me precious secrets of the truth, withholding nothing
You came out in front, and I was hiding
But now I'm so much better, and if my words don't come together
Listen to the melody. 'cause my love's in there hiding

I love you in a place
Where there's no space and time
I love you for my life
You are a friend of mine
And when my life is over,
Remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singing this song for you
