While Russell's wonderful voice sounded as lovely as ever on last
eve's Grammys telecast, he didn't move from his piano bench and never
removed his large shades. He also seems to have added quite a few
pounds over the years. In fact, he seemed almost immobile during his
turn in the spotlight.

Anyone know if he's somehow physically hurting these days--or
hopefully, perhaps just enjoying his semi-retirement?

He had brain surgery three weeks ago.

Those pounds are from cortisone therapy.

Thanks for posting the info, David and Charlene! Let's hope he fully
recovers and manages to record at least another album or two before
completely retiring; he is a talent.
