For more than half of the Rolling Stones's incredible career, Chuck Leavell has been their keyboard player and an integral part of their acclaimed live performances. But fans also recognize him from the landmark Eric Clapton Unplugged session and tours, the Late George Harrison's final performances and of course Leavell's time with the Allman Brothers at the height of their creative success.
