No way...

Billy Preston's playing is the Let It Be album. Any player that can bring the Beatles together during their implosion is a worthy cat, indeed.

Sorry to hear of his passing.

Nothin' from Nothin' leaves...

I'm going to listen to "Outta Space" tonight in remembrance. He was incredible, and much under-appreciated.
