    RIP Billy Preston

    One of the greatest keyboardists around.
    played with the Beatles, Stones, Clapton,
    Winwood, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sam Cooke, Little Richard
    George Harrison (solo career) and many more.
    Rest in peace and godspeed.

    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.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Will it go round it circles? will it fly high like a bird up in the sky?
