I grew up listening to and watching Ernest Tubb and the Texas Troubadours, I always loved it when ET would say "Aw Leon ", or Leon and Buddy now!

He had the most relaxed hands of any guitar player that I ever saw.

He was truly one of the best to ever come through Nashville!

One of my favourite players, with a knowledge of harmony to rival the top jazzers, and a tremendous drive and imagination. My world just got a little greyer :(

RIP

It’s hard to adequately describe Leon Rhodes. Most impressive. I called a friend yesterday who was close to Leon, but he already knew about it. I could tell he was having a hard time dealing with it. He could play as fast as anyone with every note clear as a bell. Good guy.
