My son Taran Killam was with SNL for six seasons. One of the first shows was with Elton John and Leon Russel. Taran connected me with this meet and I was over the moon. Leon changed my entire musical sensibility with Delta Lady along with Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour. I am busy talking bout myself, telling him I was hanging out with Claudia Lennear who did sing back up for the tour, along with Rita Coolidge, et al. I was 16 and chomping at the bit. Wish I had been old enough to audition! Even getting rejected would have been heaven. He was frail and gracious. His wife and son were charming and so happy he was playing.
