    Congratulations to Elton and Leon Russell on their great collaboration album ‘The Union’. Congratulations to Leon Russell for getting into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And congrats to Bernie Taupin for the great lyrics he provided to EJ and Leon on ‘The Union’. ‘The Union’ should get Grammy nominations for ‘Album of the Year’ for next years (2012) Grammy awards.
