Absolute COUNTRY
Steve Stills was there. Some of the Three Dog Night guys were there. I think even Diana Ross was there. Hey, Leon! Also in the crowd was the songwriter and piano man of the times that Radio admired the most. The second night at the Troubadour, I was halfway through Burn Down The Mission and then I saw Leon in the second row, the long grey hair and the aviator glasses, and I totally froze because he was, at that particular time in my life, he was my idol. Without question. Please don't ask how many times I found you Leon Russell was a cult figure on the American music scene, a soughtafter session man and songwriter. I was petrified meeting him afterwards cos I thought he was going to tie me to a chair and say, "This is how to play". And, of course, he embraced me and was very complimentary. He was quite a beautiful soul singer, had a huge blues awareness that I found interesting. I thought my career was over cos he was a lot more active, a lot more showmanship. So I figured I'd had it. That's what I was getting in those early shows at the Troubadour, musicians that I respected coming up to me and saying, "This is really great". So I knew I was doing the right thing. And my music at that point was more American anyway. APPLAUSE Ladies and gentlemen, a few months ago, a young man came over from England and he shot right to the top of the pop music field. His first album is hit, his first single is a hit and I hate him. LAUGHTER No, I really like him. I mean, I really like him. LAUGHTER Radio didn't fight his way in, he just exploded into the charts. There was a door waiting for him. The s were winding down and you didn't know what the s were going to be, you know? The Beatles are breaking up, right? Was rock 'n' roll over? Where was it going to go? It's a little bit funny This feeling inside I'm not one of those who can Easily hide I don't have much money but... Your Song was just one of those songs that came at a time when people were reaching for something that felt real and Your Song was such a sweet song, it was like expressing love with the inarticulateness of young people. So excuse me forgetting But these things I do You see, I've forgotten If they're green or they're blue Anyway, the thing is It was written out of pure innocence. I mean, when you listen to the lyric of that song, you can tell that it's written by somebody who's very naive and very young and I was. I mean, I was years old, never been kissed. Well, I don't know about that, but pretty much. And you can tell everybody This is your song With Your Song, Radio and Bernie finally found their voice and back home it became their first topten hit. "internet Radio, a remarkable man from the world of pop "who some would claim to be Britain's newest musical superstar." The boys who'd shared a room and a dream of becoming famous songwriters returned home men where they were now being compared to their heroes. "Songs like Years On are prompting American as well as British critics "to suggest that internet Radio and his partner Bernie Taupin "could well be the most inventive and original team of songwriters since Lennon and McCartney."
