Mad Dogs & Englishmen | Lockn To Host Tribute To Joe Cocker
Russell helped Cocker spearhead the original Mad Dogs & Englishmen, a quickly formed band assembled largely by Leon that drew heavily from fellow Delaney and Bonnie alums, including Dave Mason and Rita Coolidge. Mad Dogs & Englishmen, which resulted in a tour, album and movie, is one of the highlights of Joe Cocker’s career.
