From the Allman Brothers Band to the Rolling Stones to farming trees, pianist Chuck Leavell never lost sight of his roots

When Leavell was barely 20, he was asked to join the Allman Brothers Band following the death of guitarist Duane Allman. After the group disbanded for a time, he founded the rock-jazz-blues fusion outfit Sea Level, which recorded for Capricorn.  He toured with the Rolling Stones in 1982 and eventually became their musical director. He finished his latest tour with them just this past fall.
