I first knew Russell back in the 70s in Austin when he was a part of the growing music scene. He played with and wrote music for several well known musicians . Many years later we struck up a good friendship and would reminisce about Austin in the good old days. Russell was especially proud of his nickname “Wordman”, which Willie Nelson gave him. I imagine he’s having a longneck up in Honky Tonk Heaven with Rusty, Sammy and Jerry Jeff. Going to miss him
