Grave of Leon Russell Wilkeson

We went to the cemetery to find Ronnie Van Zant's grave, and we spotted Leon's when you first drive in. We couldn't find Ronnie's because the office help told us his grave was being moved yet again: same cemetery, different area.

Leon Russell Wilkeson, bassist for Lynyrd Skynyrd, should not be confused -- although he often is -- with another bearded musician, Leon Russell, who also wore a hat while performing, but is buried in Oklahoma.
