After performing at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony with Leon, John Mayer wrote on his tumblr blog:

I was thrilled to take part in inducting Leon Russell into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Most people don’t know that Leon wrote one of the greatest songs of all time, “A Song For You”, which has been covered by everyone from Donny Hathaway to Christina Aguilera. I’m really proud of our performance together so I wanted to make sure you got a chance to see it.” — http://jhnmyr.tumblr.com
