I'm gonna miss this guy. Russell was a great songwriter, and a tireless performer.
Although he is most remembered for the Amazing Rhythm Aces, I think some of his best work was with Run C&W. (Russell is on guitar and lead vocal, And yes, that's Bernie Leadon on banjo!)
The first Run C&W album is a definite 10 out of 10.
And a couple of my favorite Aces tunes....
King of the Cowboys is one of my favorite tunes.
Saw ARA in Atlanta mid seventies, put on a great show, and man what a voice.RIP
