Carl Radle was a fantastic bass player. Always at the right place right time, playing the right notes. per @JR_Knots "He had worked in LA with Leon as a member of the wrecking crew. You can see him on the Ed Sullivan re-runs of Gary Lewis and the Playboys from that era." Was watching a You Tube video just a few weeks ago re Gary Lewis and Playboys - ancient footage. Just about fell out of my chair w popcorn everywhere when they introduced the band members. Yes, there was the great Carl Radle! Life is amazing. The Leon Russell and Al Kooper connections in the early days of that band project alone is enough to leave one wondering about the Great Wheel of Life.
